Persol Ratti 649 VL Blue Neophan Lens


Vintage Persol Ratti 649 VL sunglasses feature very rare Ratti Neophan lenses, an amazing mineral glass lens with a blue - gray tint that's been the choice of Hollywood celebrities like Steve McQueen since their introduction in the 1970s. The translucent Italian tortoise shell frame is a perfect complement for the Neophan lenses, with beautiful yellow bands intersecting the orange tortoise to great effect. You'll find the Persol arrow along cylinders and pins of the patented Persol Meflecto system on both ear stems, giving them unparalleled flexibility to conform to the contours of the face. The unisex Persol Ratti 649 frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.75" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the Neophan lens trademark. The inside of one stem is marked Persol Meflecto Ratti and impressed 649 / VL while the inside of the other stem is marked Made in Italy 52 - 72, new old stock Persol Ratti 649 Neophan sunglasses in mint, unworn condition from the collection of a well known European business executive and long time customer of Vintage Designer Sunglasses.
