Ray-Ban W0753 Folding Wayfarer RB-50 Sunglasses
1 Vintage Ray-Ban W0753 folding Wayfarer sunglasses are the original version of the iconic folding Wayfarer design, and this is a very special example of the early folding Wayfarers because these have highly reflective Bausch & Lomb RB 50 mirrored lenses. The folding Wayfarer is an engineering marvel, with the ear stems folding inward to then collapsing inward while a hinge at the nose bridge allows them to fold lens over lens. The end result is a package not much larger than the size of 2 lenses stacked on top of one another. The vintage B&L Ray-Ban RB-50 lens is one of the finest, most advanced lenses you can buy. It is a unique general purpose specialty lens for moderate to extreme glare conditions. For general use, the light absorption ranges from 80% to 90% but it extends to 95% under cold, bright conditions to make it excellent for skiing and other high glare snow sports. RB-50 features include "100% ultraviolet protection comfort zoned for moderate to bright glare with an absorption" and an ability to "filter out scattered blue light to enhance contrast and sharpen details with true color recognition. The exclusive, anti-reflective coating on vintage RB 50 lenses reduces back glare and sunburn problems associated with traditional mirrored lenses.The unisex Ray-Ban W0753 folding Wayfarer frame measures approximately 5.675" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 1.875" x 1.5" at the widest points with right lens laser etched Ray-Ban 50 and both lenses laser etched BL near the hinges. You'll find the Ray-Ban logo in raised metal relief on the exterior of both ear stems, and the inside of one stem is marked B&L Ray-Ban Frame France while the inside of the other stem is marked Folding Wayfarer along with the trademark symbol.
