The legendary handmade Alpina M1 sport sunglasses were made in West Germany and first introduced in the 1980s, and they remain one of the most popular brands and styles of any vintage sunglasses today. The Alpina M1 has a modern look and gold rivets which decoate the top of the frame and the curve of the nose. Vintage Alpina sunglasses like their ski goggles are handmade in Germany, and those marked W. Germany such as these date to the years prior to the reunification of East and West Germany. You will have seen many celebrities wearing vintage Alpina M1 sunglasses including Victoria Beckham and rapper and music mogul Jay-Z. It's a cool unisex style and size, with frame measuring approximately 5.375" temple to temple and teardrop shaped lens measuring approximately 2.5" x 2.0" at the widest points. The inside of the top frame is marked Alpina M1 Made in W. Germany and the serial number all impressed in the frame, and the lower bar of the nose bridge is marked 60  12 etched in the metal.
