These are true vintage, B&L Bausch & Lomb Ray Ban USA Black Leather Outdoorsman 62mm aviator sunglasses, circa 1970's, in MINT condition. New old stock NOS and unworn. Includes black vintage B&L Ray Ban snap case and rare literature pamphlet / brochure.
Please be advised that this is my last MINT pair of this style. G31 G-31 DGM glass lenses with double gradient silver chrome mirror finish are in pristine condition and free of scratches. Dark neutral grey/green like the standard G15 lens that has the mirror coating concentrated on the top and bottom and a darkened area running horizontally in the center of the lenses. Not your average solid mirrored finish! Perfect for sunniest weather conditions.
Shiny sliver chrome plated frames are in excellent condition, have a glossy shine, and are symmetrical. Frame rims are covered in smooth black genuine leather. Temple ends and general brow bar are leather too. No plastic or metal parts digging into your head makes this model insanely comfortable and highly sought after. Top of brow bar reads B&L RAY-BAN U.Underside reads B&L 62 14 USA. Temples are straight and the fit is secure. Original silver frame and temple screws! These are just an incredibly rare find. Impossible to get a hold of at all much less in this condition.
Gold frames are overwhelmingly more common. You will find hundreds of vintage B&L Ray Ban aviators with gold frames for every pair with silver frames. Also much harder to find DGM lenses. These should go to someone who appreciates fine luxury items, quality, and the brands heritage, a true collector, fashionista, or stylist to be loved for decades to come! Please check out my other listings and positive reviews.I have reduced the price significantly. I havent seen another pair in ANY condition for sale since then. Dont snooze on this chance to add a pair to your collection!
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT ALL LISTINGS IN MY STORE. BL etching on lenses started in the late 1970s.
It can be located on the top center of the lens or sideways on the outside of the lens facing inward. There is no difference in etched vs. Non-etched lenses other than when they were made. The presence or lack thereof etching does not proof or refute authenticity! All of my listings are authentic new old stock, but that doesnt mean that there wont be some variation between pairs of the exact same model especially in models with a metal frame like aviators.
They have been in storage for 50-70 years! I note any major issues. Hairline scratches from cleaning and storage is always possible and is more prevalent in glass lenses with mirrored finishes and acetate plastic black frame. Screws and hinges are always authentic vintage, but have likely required tightening and may not be perfect.
If you want close up photos of any part of the glasses please ask. I always recommend that you take them to an optician, optometrist, or sunglasses shop for a custom fitting. Nose pads, temples, and hinges can be adjusted for a personalized fit. I provide the best softside case I have available as my gift to you. I reserve the right to change the soft case from the one pictured in the photos to one of my choosing.Please inquire if interested please. I do not sell or provide lens wipes. I put a lot of effort into wrapping and boxing them safely.
Need extra screws, lenses, cases, etc. Let me know and Ill see what I can work out for you. Most of my inventory is unlisted. Ask me if I have them!I can also customize aviators cable vs. Straight temples, lens colors, frame sizes, etc. I appreciate your business and my repeat customers. 50s 50s 60s 60s Retro Ray-Ban Rayban Collector Collectors Collectors Item Display VTG Large Oversized Flash Pilot Antique Metal Investment Rochester History America American Special Edition Aviators ODM 62 Mens Womens Mint Flawless Pristine Rare Hard to Find Unicorn Priceless Antique Military Hunter Stylist Luxury Celeb Celebrity HTF Gradient Density General.
