Persol 649 2 Ratti Torino Brown Gradient Sunglasses
1 Vintage Persol 649 2 sunglasses feature a beautiful Italian frame with all the distinctive Persol design features at the nose bridge, hinges, and ear stems, and they also feature the Persol Meflecto system that lets the frame mold itself to the shape of the wearer’s face. The Meflecto system involves inserting two to four small cylinders into the acetate arm to give it flexibility, a craft manufacturing process exclusive to Persol sunglasses, and you can see the Meflecto inserts as vertical bands in the ear stems of these rare Persol Ratti 649/2 sunglasses. You may also recognize Persol 649 sunglasses as the sunglasses of choice for actors Marcello Mastroianni, Steve McQueen, and Don Johnson in the Miami Vice series among others.The unisex Persol 649 frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the brown gradient lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.75" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol trademark. You'll find the Persol arrow point hinges on the exterior of both ear stems, part of the collection of a well known European business executive and long time customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.

2 SPECIAL DISCOUNT OPPORTUNITY!  Sometimes when a very old, rare style of sunglasses comes in but has some kind of very minor flaw we use the opportunity to offer a rare style at a truly bargain price. That's the case with these vintage Persol 649 2 Ratti Torino sunglasses that have a small lens mark at the upper outside corner of the left lens as you can see here noticeable only with direct pinponit lighting to make it more visible in the photo. It's completely outside the field of vision, and otherwise the frame and lenses are in outstanding near mint condition.
