I have figured out these are 55mm 3025 aviators I believe. Ones made prior to when the started putting the white cursive brand name on the right lens and also prior to the laser etching on the lenses. So what I need to find, is a pair of replacement lenses that are green, unmirrored or mirrored, but without the white cursive logo. I would be ok with getting ones with the laser etching on them. Anyone know where I can find some? Thx. D
I'm thinking of purchasing a pair of B&L sunglasses on ebay, but I have some doubts whether they genuine or not.
Here is the item description: They are embossed with B&L on the left lens and embossed on top of frame with B&L RAYBAN USA they are 20+ years old ,they are gold with brown lenses.
Now I've read that both lenses and the bottom of the bridge part of the frame and the nosepads should also have B&L / B&L RAYBAN USA. In this case I only know that one of the lenses does have B&L on it. Could these still be genuine, or should I pass on them?
Did Ray-Ban start to use laser etch at the beginning? Or they first used chemical/mechanical etching technique.
Some Ray-Ban USA have thin BL being etched on both lens, some have thicker BL on both lens, some have only BL on the right lens. Could you please advise?
The BL signs in attached picture look so thick. Are they fake? I guess that some were "older" so they have not used laser etch which created thinner BL.
