Serengeti 6216 Vermilion Graphite Wrap Sunglasses
Vintage Serengeti 6216 Vermilion sunglasses are a unique Serengeti design that combines elements of Ray-Ban Predator sunglasses but in a much sleeker frame along with the top of the line Corning Optics rose double gradient mirror Vermilion lenses. Serengeti Vermilion lenses by Corning were marketed as "the first all weather, high performance sunglasses for skiing, sailing, and extreme exposure conditions with photochromatic, Vermillion double gradient mirror and anti-reflection coated lenses." Marketing literature from the period goes on to note that "their built-in Spectral Control filters sharpen images for extraordinary visibility and eye comfort in all daylight weather conditions", and they provide "extra high contrast in low, flat light, haze, rain or snow; in bright sunlight, the photochromatic lenses darken for superb glare protection, vision, and comfort, significantly cutting eye fatigue." The unisex Serengeti 6216 Graphite Wrap frame measures approximately 5.675" temple to temple, and the Corning Optics Vermilion double gradient mirror lenses measure approximately 2.375" x 1.675" at the widest points. You'll find the Serengeti logo embossed on the exterior of both ear stems, and the inside of one stem is marked Serengeti Eyewear 6216 while the inside of the other stem is marked Corning Optics and one ear pad is impressed Frame Japan. Rare.
