What's for sale?

This is a pair of original American, Ray-Ban "Sidestreet" sunglasses with reflective, Bausch & Lomb smoke-grey glass lenses and unisex, matt silver W2321 frames.

The Bausch & Lomb G-31 smoke-grey lenses block 88% of visible light and 100% of UV light.

Included is a modern Bausch & Lomb Ray-Ban case with hardened front.

They were made in the 1990s, which is important as Bausch & Lomb sold Ray-Ban in 1999; today Ray-Bans are no longer made in America or with these lenses.

Who made them and when?

They're made by American optic specialist Bausch & Lomb. Both lenses are engraved "BL".  They were probably made in the 1990s.

The frames are marked:

  • B&L RAY-BAN U.S.A.
  • W2321 NNAS

What condition are they in?

Please remember when viewing the photographs that some have been taken at a greater magnification than normal vision.

  • Second-hand
  • In fair condition
  • The left lens has faint scratches in the centre

What are the measurements?

  • Each lens is a maximum 52mm wide and 30mm high
  • The frames are a maximum 137mm wide and 32mm high
  • The bridge is 21mm
  • The temple arm length is 140mm
  • They weigh 33 grams

How are glasses measured?

  • Some frames have their sizes printed on the arms
  • Look for a pair of numbers separated by a square and a three-digit number on its own (e.g. "52[]19 ... 140")
  • The first two numbers are the lens and bridge widths. The three-digit number is the temple arm length
  • Lens widths are from 40 to 62mm, bridges 14 to 22mm and arms 120 to 150mm
  • The bridge is measured where the gap between the lenses is narrowest (not the frames)
  • The arm is measured from the hinge along its full length, including around the bend
  • It's easiest to compare online measurements with glasses that fit you.
