Carrera Porsche Design 5623 55 Blue and

Gold Sunglasses

Vintage Carrera Porsche Design 5623 55 sunglasses feature the very hard to find blue and gold frame that is the perfect complement to these rare blue - green gradient lenses and a second set of gray constant density lenses. You’ll love the look of the blue front frame which forms a thin border for the interchangeable Carrera lenses coupled with the gold center hinge and ear stems, a frame style that’s many times rarer than the more traditional matte black, gold, silver, or silver and gold Carrera Porsche Design frames. The blue -green gradient lenses have a color reminiscent of the ocean and look great as do the gray lenses with the blue and gold 5623 frame. The center frame hinge raises to allow the interchangeable lenses to be inserted into small prongs on the frame, and the second set of lenses are stored in a felt pouch in the included black Carrera Porsche Design case. This stiye of vintage Porsche Carrera sunglasses was made possible in this moderately oversized style by the innovative use of optyl plastic to produce a lightweight yet optically excellent lens in a size that would be prohibitively heavy in glass. The Carrera 5623 55 frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.675" x 2.125" at the widest points. Carrera Porsche Design along with the PD logo is laser etched on the left lens of both lens sets, and one ear stem is impressed with the unique serial number and marked Made in Austria 5623 55 130 and the other stem is marked Porsche Design by Carrera along with the US patent number impressed on the black ear pad. While there may be some de minimus marks visible under magnification from long storage, these are new old stock Carrera Porsche Design 5623 55 sunglasses in de facto mint, unworn condition direct from the collection of a well known sports figure and customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.
