RB50 ULTRA

post #1682 of 2094

: RB50 ULTRA

 

Amazing!

So there are RB50 lenses on models other than the 50 Anniversary models?

And not all RB50 lenses have the "50" logo?

Are all RB50 lenses equal?

Or some are more equal than others, in terms of quality, rarity and desirability?

Theyre like the RB50, likewise mirrored and with ambermatic photochromatic characteristics, lbut on top theyre also polarized.



I think its safe to say they are one of the if not the most advanced lenses by Bausch and Lomb.
They are amazing honestly, but slightly too expensive to wear on regular basis B-)

Hello,

 

I have a pair of original Top Gun Aviator Ray Bans from the 80's.

In perfect condition.

Has original case and hook-behind-the-ear style arms.

 

Any idea what they are worth?

 

Thanks,

 

Richard

Hi! So I found these on the ground awhile back at my college campus and I have some questions. First off, are they legit? If they are legit can you guys provide some information on them? I am curious about when they were most likely produced, what model they are, and what they might be worth! Thanks in advance!

Hi Welcome,

 

perfect condition you say, but i see a bended nose bridge, furthermore they look like the are at least a bit dirty and maybe some corrosion.

anyway, value is hard to tell from just 3 pictures, but from the given fact they are one of the most standard models which you find really at almost every street corner plus the above given observation, i would say 25 - 50 usd

 

enjoy

look like a pair of legit non vintage luxottica ray ban outdoorsman. produced after 1999 as before Ray Ban was owned by Bausch and Lomb.

Value, no clue, nothing to me at least as this forum is about vintage ray bans.

 

good luck

Hallo. I am new here. I want to ask if this is original rb 3009 w2960.  Ray ban on right lenses. BL etched on left lenses.

Ray ban ce  on right temple.     RB 3009 w2960 on left temple.    It is really good made. Lenses are not plastic.  My only confusion is the nose pads. Without rb or bl.  Thank you in advance.

Hi welcome,

 

i dont know a lot about sidestreet, but taking as a reference http://www.vintagesunglassesshop.com/item_vs224.html

 

text on the temples is more like how lxottica looks like. No clue if Luxottica has a sidestreet model. But BL sidestreet definitely have different text. The nos pads indeed look strange. I understand only one lens is etched BL? that sounds wrong too. i dont know...a lot seems not to be correct

post #1690 of 2094

Yes only one lense. And those strange nose pads. First time saw them.  I know vintage bl has straight line nose pad, but not like this.  It just so good made. The feel is like ray ban. Without doubt.  I dont know if exist so good made replica

post #1691 of 2094

i know for sure such like yours are not made by BL at least :smarmy:

Hello..im new here..very nice & informative ..good info
post #1693 of 2094

Can anybody tell me more about these?

 

They're B&L aviators, passed to me by my grandfather who was gifted them from (I think) one of his forces friends. The Second World War was mentioned (either used during or owned by a vet), but not much more is known about them.

 

The protective case has only a B&L USA engraving/stamp on it. The interior is lightly lined with a cream/yellowed cloth.

 

The lenses are glass. From the description of the G-15 XLT lenses, I think they might be used in these.

 

The frame appears similar to the GF 58mm model, but with some minor differences, which leads me to think they might be of a similar age. Just a guess.

 

There's some oxidation around the frame and on the edge of the lenses, so I'm really interested to know what I should do to restore them as best I can, if anybody has any experience with that kind of thing.

These look like pre- Rayban. They are called AN6531 and were military issued during  world war two. And in original case too.

post #1695 of 2094

Thanks for replying, Nieuwenhuizen. The model number is really helpful! From a quick search for more information, the pair I have do appear to be AN6531.

 

I wonder what sort of stories they would tell if they could?
