Vintage Ray-Ban Sunglasses - Page 1

Vintage Ray-Ban sunglasses originated when Bausch & Lomb began making Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses for the US military in the late 1930s, and their legacy of optical excellence and innovation continued for the next 60 years before the company was sold to Luxottica in 1998. Vintage B&L Ray-Ban sunglasses include many classics including Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Kalichrome, Ambermatic, Leathers, Changeables, Diamond Hard, Chromax, Orbs, Rituals, Sidestreet, Signet, Clubmaster, CATS, Wings, Flying Colors, Predator, Precious Metals, and bullet hole shooter sunglasses.
