About

Superb Collectors Item

There isnt any pair more rare than these, especially new, maybe 4 or 5 still exist: The 1955 Deep Freeze 12k Gold filled outdoorsman sporting G15 double mirror lenses.
Straight earpieces with the dark brown plastic all around. White nosepads with the diamond metal shape.
Original Aluminium Bausch and Lomb hard case with zink to protect the sunglasses from freezing in Antarctica.
USA made. The best sunglasses ever made, there is no comparison.
Frame is perfect and straight like an arrow. 60 year old piece.
Codename Operation Deep Freeze I began in 1955, these were made by Bausch and Lomb for the american army to endure the ultra cold weather on the southern Arctic and give perfect vision to pilots and the army in the snow. The G15 grey, combined with the double gradient mirror, protected them from getting snow blind. Minor signs of wear due to 60 years in storage.
A superb museum piece.
