Vintage Ray-Ban Basch & Lomb, model Fantasees.
Size: 58-14
Vintage Ray-Ban Fantasees sunglasses, 1970-80's. They have one of the most rare, vintage, Bausch & Lomb features - ultra gradient, mineral glass lenses. The B&L Fantasees ultra gradient lens was the successive and final stroke in the catalogue of B&L Ray-Ban products from the 1960s, 70s and early 80s, after which they ceased being produced due to the high production costs. The photochromatic properties in a light-coloured lens made them unique amongst others of the same period. They darken much more rapidly compared to any other lenses that B&L had ever made. The fact that they are simple, untinted and with a slight mirror finish on the top part means that they have the appearance, and work in a similar way, to normal glasses if they are worn inside or in poor light conditions. This means that the wearer doesn't have to keep raising and lowering their sunglasses as they go from inside to outside. Above all they give 100% protection to UVA and UVB when outside. They look really good in the unisex, gold, Ray-Ban Fantasees frames. They measure approx. 5.5" temple to temple and the B&L 58 mm Fantasees measure approx. 2.25" x 1.875" at the widest point. Both are laser engraved with BL and embossed with B&L Ray-Ban USA on the top of the bridge. The bottom of the bridge is embossed with B&L 62 [] 14 USA. They come from a large European collection of vintage Ray-Ban sunglasses.
