post #1561 of 2123

I recently purchased a pair what I believe to be "vintage" RB Signets. But after reading on the net, I am wondering if they are in fact authentic.I have seen several articles on spotting copies but they are all for new glasses.Any helpful words on how to I.D. them? Thanks.Dave.

@bjordan82 thats probably the easiest question in ray ban world. Its an avaitor large metal I or II depending on size (58 or 62). I dont thing theyre 64mm which would make them a LM III, neither i tink theyre 52 mm what would make the a small metal. You can find out on your own by chcking under the bridge.
Yours come with a comstant density lens. Looks like the standard G15, however they maybe could be mid grey G31. Hard to tell by a picture.

Anyway its the model that made Ray Ban famous.

Enjoy

I have an old pair of Ray Bans that I inherited from my Dad who passed away few months ago.  They are the aviator with B & L 62[]14 USA on bottom of bridge.  Only problem is the lenses look like they fell in bottom of boat face down and are scratched "buffed" where surfaces met.  The right eye lens has BL etched by temple attachment.  Do you know where I could get authentic replacement lenses or can the scratches be polished out and still retain their optical clearity

Hi welcome.

sorry for your loss.

your sunglasses are Bausch and Lomb, pre 1999. After that Ray Ban were sold to Luxottica. Size wise the lenses are identical. Its just not BL.

So i would go for vintage lenses if i were you.

Maybe i can even help you out. All depends what type of lenses you have. Send me or post some pics and i cn tell more detailed info

 

enjoy

@Ppaolo nice pair. ive a similar pair with B15 lenses. i think you listed it all. my guessing  is theyre somewhere close to the 90s.

regarding value..in my perspective there is no value o vintage...but wildest guess is around 120E, depending on the confition

post #1571 of 2123

Thanks for the reply. It is 1990, used but in excellent condition.
What intrigued me was that I had never seen them in the driving series
I keep them because they have really a vintage look

:)

Then I also have a pair of Ray Ban Bausch & Lomb Shooter 1/30 10K GO 62-14. 70 years with case
Lenses with BL incisions near the hinges. and BL etching on the lens is inverted.
Always used but in excellent condition

@Lilhinders i think they might be from the 1996 olympics. not 100% sure though.

value...vintage items dont have a fixed value imo. its depending on where you sell it, and to who. mostly vintage items are only valuable to to vintage lovers :-). Further condition will be of huge impact as collectors want the best condition as possible.

But if you want to know, put them for sale and see what you get offered. That will determine the vlaue at that moment for your Ray Bans

Thank you.
The "Outdoorsman II Tortoise G-Style" series "for driving" I do not sell them because at least here in Italy I have not seen many.
I could sell Ray Ban Bausch & Lomb Shooter 1/30 10K GO 62-14. 70 years with case (lenses with BL incisions near the hinges. BL and etching on the lens is inverted.) But do not know the value

what do you mean with inverted? laying instead of standing..?

 

indeed me neither saw the B15 TGM lens in the road spirit. We do need to take in account though of cause that sunglasses could have been "customized" trough the years. Issue with BL is that its hard to find out was actually produced. Especially in early years where custom request were accepted.
