Ray-Ban W1508 and W1506 Diamond Hard Tortuga General Sunglasses

1 Vintage Ray-Ban Diamond Hard W1508 Tortuga General sunglasses are one of the most highly prized models in the famous B&L Ray-Ban Diamond Hard line. They feature highly reflective 62mm gold mirror Bausch & Lomb Diamond Hard lenses, gold plated Arista frame, and Tortuga General bar and nose pads that round out the look. Ray-Ban Diamond Hard was a Bausch & Lomb scratch protection system which created a lens surface of amorphous diamond that is 10x more resistant to scratching than ordinary glass. This surface also sheds water, reducing water spotting and making the lens easier to clean. The diamond surface is permanently bonded to the lens via an ion beam process originally developed by NASA. You'll find the Ray-Ban logo etched in the metal of each ear stem near the hinges, and the lenses measure approximately 2.375" x 2.0" at the widest points with right lens laser etched Ray-Ban along with the Diamond Hard logo and both lenses are laser etched BL near the hinges. The top of the nose bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban USA, the bottom of the bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban 62 [] 14, and one ear pad is impressed W1508 NSAS, part of the collection of a well known movie and TV figure and long time customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.
