Ray-Ban L1701 Tortuga 58mm B-15 Aviator Sunglasses
1 Vintage Ray-Ban L1701 Tortuga 58mm aviator sunglasses feature the rare Tortuga variation of the Arista gold plated frame along with hard to find Bausch & Lomb B-15 brown color contrast lenses. You'll see 50 B&L Ray-Ban Arista gold plated aviators for every one Tortuga aviator that comes along, and there's no better color complement for the Tortuga than the brown B-15 lenses. Bausch & Lomb B-15 high contrast brown mineral glass lenses screen out blue light to improve contrast and sharpen details, providing 85% visible light absorption and 100% UV protection, and vintage B-15 lenses are much harder to find than the more common G-15 lenses. The unisex Ray-Ban 58mm Tortuga aviator frame measures approximately 5.375" temple to temple, and the B&L B-15 lenses measure approximately 2.25" x 1.875" 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 while the bottom of the bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban 58 [] 14, a rare and beautiful example of vintage Ray-Bans from an American Airlines pilot's collection in the Dallas / Fort Worth TX area.
