Vintage B&L Ray-Ban W1830 sunglasses from the Classic Metals collection have the harder to find RB-3 lenses that tint to a lighter green set in a Arista white gold frame that works perfectly with the RB-3 lenses.The vintage Bausch & Lomb RB-3 lens was designed for "absorption balanced with the eye's sensitivity to color for peak acuity - 71% visible light absorption; 100% ultraviolet protection." These vintage W1830's look great on most all men and women, but we think the color combination works particularly well for those with gray or trending to gray hair. The highest quality Arista white gold plated frame has the distinctive perimeter etching that indicates Ray-Bans top quality plate used c 1980s - 1990s. The frame is a nice size measuring approximately 5.125" temple to temple with mostly oval lenses that measure approximately 1.875" x 1.375" at the widest points. The right lens is laser etched Ray-Ban, both lenses are laser etched BL, the rear of the nose bridge is marked B&L Ray-Ban USA, and one some production one ear pad is impressed W1830 YNAS. Authentic new old stock B&L Ray-Ban W1830 Arista sunglasses with rare RB-3 lenses in mint, unworn condition.
