Ray-Ban L1693 62mm and L1632 58mm B-15 Top Gradient Mirror Driving Sunglasses
1 Vintage B&L Ray-Ban B-15 top gradient mirror (TGM) 62mm driving sunglasses feature one of the best lenses ever produced by Bausch & Lomb, with a highly reflective mirrored coating on the top half of the lenses transitioning to the B-15 high contrast brown lenses for the lower half. It's a great effect to look at, but it's also functional and used by those like pilots who need optimum glare protection and reflection when looking outward but need to read instrument panels and LEDs down below and where mirrors can inhibit visual acuity. These rare TGM aviators from the Ray-Ban Driving Series also feature a gold plated Arista frame that will stand the test of time and measures approximately 5.675" temple to temple. The 62mm B-15 top gradient mirror lenses measure approximately 2.375" x 2.0" at the widest points with the right lens laser etched Ray-Ban and both lenses laser etched BL near the hinges. The top of the nose bridge is marked B&L Ray-Ban USA while the bottom of the bridge is marked B&L Ray-Ban 62 [] 14, all impressed in the gold plating.
