Persol Ratti 003 Black Sunglasses
1 Vintage Persol 003 sunglasses feature 4 individual panes of glass - the front frame and the side shields - in what has become one of the most iconic Persol sunglasses styles ever produced. If you're out in the sunlight a lot or just have sensitive eyes, trust us that you'll really appreciate the added eye protection you get from the side shields of the Persol 003. These Persol Ratti 003 sunglasses were produced in Persol's Ratti manufactury reserved for their highest quality production and feature the Meflecto system unique to vintage Persol sunglasses. The Persol Meflecto system system consists of tiny cylinders inserted by a craftsman process into the ear stems to render them flexible, thereby assuring maximum comfort and snugness of fit. Persol marketing literature from the period notes that the Meflecto system offers "excellent functionality and perfect fitting to the wearer's face" along with a "smart design and exceptional solidity of construction". The unisex Persol 003 frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.125" x 1.675" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol mark at the upper outside corners. You'll find Ratti impressed in the metal band that goes across the top of the front frame, and the inside of one stem is impressed 003 and marked Persol Meflecto Ratti while the inside of the other stem is marked Made in Italy.
