Vuarnet 002 Skilynx Hunter Green Olympics Sunglasses
Vintage Vuarnet 002 Skilynx sunglasses are an icon of 20th century sunglasses design, produced in a wide variety of frame and lens combinations and here with PX-4000 Skilynx lenses. More on those later. But these Vuarnet 002 Skilynx sunglasses have 2 rarities associated with them - the hunter green color produced in only very small quantities and the fact that these were produced c 1983-1984 to commemorate Vuarnet's sponsorship of the 1984 Olympics. The famous Vuarnet PX-4000 Skilynx lenses feature an amber-yellow base with anti-reflective interior coatings and double gradient mirror exterior filters, eliminating glare and reflection while enhancing contrast and depth of field - known the world over as "the essential lens for in the mountains and at sea." The unisex Vuarnet 002 frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple, and the Vuarnet 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". You'll find the Vuarnet PX (Pouilloux) logo impressed on the exterior of one ear stem along with the repeating star symbol of the 1984 Los Angeles Olmpic Games and an impressed PX and printed Vuarnet embossed on the other stem. The inside of one stem is impressed France along with the French crown trademark; very rare.
