Currently 67$, 60€ and seven and half days left. Its not about how much I would pat this case as i would not be surprised if they will hit well over 100€ even its a rather simple model
Let us wait and see in 8 days
I have the exact same pair as above but after years of use and abuse the leather is peeling off. Any ideas regarding service / repair , anybody that provides this kind of service?
Hi there! This is my first post here. I happened to find this forum whilst googling for info on the original Wayfarers from Bausch & Lomb. I started getting myself interested in these sunglasses around 2 weeks ago, and I now own two already. A B&L 5022 and a 5024, both in light havana (just Like Jake Blues' in the iconic movie). I measure them and the 5024 are exactly 2mm wider as supposed to be, but I didn't spot any other major differences. They have the B&L markings on the lenses and the frame, and the 5022 actually has a marking on the end of the right temple arm: L2052 XRAW (CE). The 5024 is a 40 Years Special Edition. So the 5024 seems to have the classic G15 lenses, whereas the 5022 has some blueish / grey lenses. In fact, I happen to prefer the latter, I feel the green tint rather disturbing and too bright. I have quite sensitive eyes and I need the brightness to go down, but i feel the G15 to be very bright, like it just removes the blue spectrum. Is this normal?
Could anyone shed any light on what the grey / blueish lenses are exactly? I guess they are mineral too, but I don't seem to find any information on these and Ray-Ban only offers the G-15 and the B-15 classic lenses. Well that's it for now! I'm hoping to collect a couple more different Wayfarer styles.
@oosterling Oh, awesome, thanks! I wasn't aware of those. It makes entirely sense. Although my 5022 don't look that green to be honest, more like grey/blue. I'll go to a shop and try to compare with some G15. But the RB3, that definitely makes sense. I found this image on google.
My next pair I'm hoping will be an RB2113 (flex arms). These probably don't qualify as vintage for this forum but would anyone be able to tell me when they first started being produced?
I'm so happy I found this forum, as I had no idea on where I would get to talk about this subject. Btw, is anyone here the guy that has a Youtube channel with loads of videos on Wayfarers? He has a london accent. Just wanted to say hi and let you know your videos have been very helpful to me.
