Persol Ratti 002 A Meflecto Tortoise Shell

Side Shields Sunglasses

Vintage Persol Ratti 002 A sunglasses are one of the most distinctive of all vintage Persol styles, featuring glass side shields on each side that will give you unparalleled eye protection from the sides and the Persol Meflecto system for unprecedented flexibility and fit. Each ear stem has 2 metal cylinders inserted to provide flex and a perfect fit, the trademark technology of the Persol Meflecto system dating to 1938. The tortoise shell Italian frame is incredibly translucent, letting light pass through and uniquely distinctive with the glass side shields of the 002 style. The unisex Persol 002 sunglasses frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.375" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol trademark. The inside of one stem is marked Persol 002/A while the inside of the other stem is marked 122 24 Ratti Made in Italy. These are new old stock Persol 002 A sunglasses with glass side shields in mint, unworn condition, direct from a defunct Beverly Hills, CA optical shop in the 1980s.
