Find out model number (if it is current it will be on Carrerra's site) and insert into Google...

Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but I have a pair of these in the tortoise brown with green lenses. I got them for nothing when a local optical was going out of business. Who knew they'd be an iconic sunglass? I just used them for driving and after a rinsing they look as good now as when they came out of the factory.

Persol has a similar style out this year - 3047. I think I prefer them to the Carreras...

Seems subtle enough. The balance of the materials seems better on the Persols to me - a bit more harmonious. Having the metal bridge only seems more random, imo. But to each his own - I wouldn't mind owning either. I only mention them since the vintage Carreras are obviously more difficult to find.

I prefer the Persol mainly for the absence of branding on the lens.
