Ray-Ban 58mm Black Chrome General RB-3 Sunglasses
1 Vintage Ray-Ban General sunglasses feature a black chrome frame and "The General" brow bar which all looks great combined with the 58mm Bausch & Lomb RB-3 anti-glare lenses. Black chrome with RB-3 lenses is a much harder to find combination than gold plating, and it's an elegant and stylish look that's perfect for both formal and casual occasions. The vintage B&L Ray-Ban black chrome finish was the most durable black coating ever made for metals, done via an ion transfer process to permanently bond the black coating to the metal frame underneath. Bausch & Lomb RB-3 lenses, more green than the more common G-15 lens, were originally developed for the US military to feature "absorption balanced with the eye's sensitivity to colors for peak acuity". The unisex Ray-Ban 58mm General frame measures approximately 5.375" temple to temple, and the 58mm B&L Ray-Ban RB-3 lenses measure approximately 2.375" x 2.0" 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 USA while the bottom of the bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban 58 [] 14.
