Ray-Ban L9797 58mm B-15 Aviator Sunglasses

1 Vintage Ray-Ban B-15 aviator sunglasses are a icon of modern sunglass design, with gold plated 58mm aviator frame and Bausch & Lomb brown B-15 mineral glass lenses. Bausch & Lomb B-15 high contrast brown mineral glass lenses screen out blue light to improve contrast and sharpen details, providing 85% visible light absorption and 100% UV protection, and vintage B-15 lenses are much harder to find than the more common G-15 lenses. The unisex Ray-Ban 58mm aviator frame measures approximately 5.375" temple to temple, and the B-15 high contrast lenses measure approximately 2.25" x 1.875" at the widest points with right lens laser etched Ray-Ban and both lenses laser etched BL near the hinges. The top of the nose bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban while the bottom of the bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban 58 [] 14 and on some production one ear pad is impressed L9797 PNAW, part of an American Airlines pilot's collection from the Dallas / Fort Worth TX area.
