B&L Bausch & Lomb L1629 Wings Leathers Pink Changeables Sunglasses
Vintage Bausch & Lomb L1629 Wings Leathers sunglasses feature a rare one piece polycarbonate pink Changeables photochromatic lens trimmed in burgundy English bridle leather in a subtle wrap design which quickly became one of the top choices of pilots around the world following their introduction. B&L Wings sunglasses were the last great innovation from B&L in eyewear before selling the Ray-Ban brand to Luxottica in 1998. Aside from the unique design and 1 piece lens, Wings sunglasses also used polycarbonate lenses - the same material used on airplane windshields - which allowed Wings to provide a large surface area of eye protection while remaining lightweight. Very few B&L Wings Leathers were produced, and even fewer combined burgundy leather with Bausch & Lomb pink changeables lenses, photochromatic to adapt to changing light conditions. The photochromatic properties of B&L Ray-Ban Changeables lenses are infused into the lens and will never wear off or wear out. The B&L L1629 Wings Leathers unisex frame measures approximately 5.675" temple to temple, and the left side of the lens is laser etched Wings Bausch & Lomb. The gold bar behind the nose is impressed B&L Ray-Ban USA, part of the collection of a 30 year veteran of Delta Airlines and customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.
