Ray-Ban's 22-karat gold plated Ultra Aviators
These ray-ban glasses are characterized by their oval shaped lenses that narrow towards the bridge of the nose. They were initially developed for pilots who needed anti-glare glasses and were later acknowledged by popular with civilians in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Now, to commemorate the anniversary, Ray-Ban is offering 25,000 pairs of 22-karat gold-plated "Ultra" aviators at $485. The Ray-Ban Ultra limited edition is a valuable piece of the company's heritage and comes in two models, Ray-Ban Aviator and Ray-Ban outdoorsman.
