Vuarnet Skilynx 502 and 4502 Folding Sunglasses
1 Vintage Vuarnet Skilynx 502 and 4502 (in the early 1990s Vuarnet added a 4 prefix to their model numbers to indicate the PX-4000 Skilynx lens but they are identical) sunglasses are a marvel of modern engineering, folding up into a package not much bigger than the surface area of a single lens. This amazing feat of engineering folds via the hinges located at the center of both ear stems allowing half the stem to fold inward, and then both lenses fold inward by way of the hinge at the nose bridge. The brown nylon frame is durable, ready for high performance outdoor pursuits not to mention the top of the line Vuarnet PX-4000 Skilynx lenses. Vuarnet Skilynx lenses are an amber-yellow base glass lens with anti-reflective interior coatings and double gradient mirror silver exterior filters. This legendary Vuarnet lens eliminates glare and reflection, enhances contrast and depth of field, and is recognized as the essential lens for in the mountains and at sea. The unisex Vuarnet 4502 folding sunglasses frame measures approximately 5.375" temple to temple when open, and the Skilynx lenses measure approximately 2.125" x 1.75" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the trademark Vuarnet "V on a Ski" at the top center. You'll find the Vuarnet PX logo embossed on the exterior of one ear stem and PX on the other, and the inside of one stem is marked 4502 or 502 (very early production in this series did not have a model # but are identical in every way) while the inside of the other stem is impressed France along with the crown trademark. Rare.
