Even more vintage B&L Ray Ban treasure for your bidding pleasure. It's more of the last best sunglass lens technology developed by B&L Ray Ban in the closing days of the company. These are the B-20 Chromax color contrast technology which were a substantial improvement over the standard brown B-15 lens that were the predecessors to the B-20. This is the ultimate in a driving lens, but works just as well for eveyday use. This time, these B-20 Amber Chromax are in the iconic Aviator Shooter frame in Large II lens size 62mm. These are color contrast at it's very finest. Call it treasure since no othe company has ever made anything close to the Chromax and likely never will.

These are early 1990's Chromax and have the B&L logo etch on both lenses, plus the gold Ray Ban script logo followed by the gold Chromax lightning bolt. The top of the crossbar is stamped "B&L RAY-BAN U.S.A." Both nose pads also have the B&L stamp in the center metal support. The brow bar and nose pads are matching simulated mother-of-pearl. The glasses come equipped with cable temples for a secure fit for driving or outdoor summer fun.

The overall condition of the glasses is excellent to near mint. The frames are in sparkling bright condition with no corrosion, no nicks, no wear through of the gold finish. There are a couple of tiny tool marks on the metal part of the brow bar, but these are very minor stuff. The plastic parts of the frame including the nose pads and brow bar show no age degradation or deterioration at all. The 4 screw heads have light to moderate deformation from tightening. The frames display perfect symmetry and alignment as do the lenses. Hinge tension is adjusted just right. Both lenses are in excellent condition with no nicks, pits, chips or scuffs, but there are a few very light scratches on either lens. The scratches are too light to interfere with vision and aren't really obvious at all, but the perfectionist collector looking for that perfect pair may want to pass on these. The sunglasses do come with an original Ray Ban aviator type hard case which is likewise in excellent condition, but it's not the original black Chromax case.
