B&L Ray-Ban L1708 Tortuga 62mm aviator sunglasses from the Large Metals / Classic Metals line are one of the most popular frame styles ever produced by Bausch & Lomb - and with good reason. The alternating shades of gold shading to red around the entire perimeter of the frame is what really sets off the Tortuga aviator, reminiscent of a tortoise shell but all done with enamel on metal and in this case a 24k gold plated Arista frame. It's a beautiful design, and the 62mm aviator is of course a classic. The unisex Ray-Ban L1708 Tortuga frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple with 62mm Bausch & Lomb brown B-15 lenses measuring approximately 2.25" x 2.0" at the widest points. The right lens is laser etched Ray-Ban in italics, and both lenses are laser etched BL near the hinges. The top of the nose bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban USA and the bottom of the bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban 62  14, and on some production one ear pad is impressed L1708 WPAS. These are new old stock Ray-Ban L1708 Tortuga 62mm aviator sunglasses in mint, unworn condition, part of an incredible collection of rare vintage B&L Ray-Bans in Orlando, FL.
