Vuarnet Brown Skilynx 002 Sunglasses

1 Vintage Vuarnet PX Skilynx sunglasses are the famous Vuarnet 002 style but in a very early light brown / chocolate color that has hues of burnt orange, a departure from the more traditional black, brown, blue, and red Vuarnet cat eye sunglasses. This frame color looks great with the double gradient mirror Vuarnet Skilynx lenses, highly reflective and both with the distinctive laser etched "V on a Ski" at the top center of the lenses. You'll find the PX symbol on the outside of one ear stem and PX Pouilloux on the other stem, early marks which indicate their production in the original Vuarnet factory in Pouillloux, France. The frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the mirrored Skilynx lenses measure approximately 2.125" x 1.75" at the widest points. The inside of one ear stem is impressed France along with the crown mark, and the inside of the other stem is impressed Pouilloux. An early example of vintage Vuarnet Skilynx sunglasses from a St. Louis, MO estate collection of fine vintage eyewear.

2 Vintage Vuarnet Skilynx 002 sunglasses are identical to # 1 above but were a commemorative model reflecting Vuarnet sponsorship of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, CA. Inside ear stem marks are identical to those above as well as the laser etched V on a Ski on the mirrored Skilynx lenses, but here the exterior of one ear stem is marked PX Vuarnet while the exterior of the other stem is marked PX and the overlapping star symbol of the 23rd Olympiad. The star is a universal symbol of the highest aspirations of mankind, and the repitition of the star shape connoted the spirit of competition between equally outstanding human forms.
