Ray-Ban 58mm 12k GF The General Aviator Sunglasses
1 An original B&L Ray-Ban 58mm 12k gold filled General aviator sunglasses is an icon in the history of sunglasses, something that collectors and vintage fashion aficionados will always have in their collections. The unisex 12k gold filled frame means that these vintage aviators will stand the test of time, as they've already done since their production c 1960s, and it measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple. The 58mm G-15 aviator lenses measure approximately 2.25" x 1.875" at the widest points, one of the original anti-glare mineral glass lenses Bausch & Lomb made for the US military. The pearlized "General" brow bar both looks great and helps to improve the balance of the sunglasses on the face, and you will note that it's thinner than some later versions which helps to date these vintage Generals to early in the production cycle. The top of the nose bridge is marked B&L Ray-Ban USA while the bottom of the bridge is marked B&L 1/10 12k GF all impressed in the gold plating, part of an important collection of vintage Ray-Bans in Salt Lake City, Utah.
