Pre 1995 Ray Ban Aviators "Made in Italy CE"?

Postby Aussiejohn on Mon May 06, 2013 7:16 pm

I have a pair of genuine RB3025 L2923 Ray Ban Aviators with a Made in Italy (with CE) mark, but the research I have done is that B & L manufactured these in USA until sale of the company in 1999 at which point they were made in Italy. The glasses are unworn and as such in A1 condition.

I assume that sunglasses are authentic as they pass all the tests, and my son-in-law who was a optical dispenser made them up for me form customers who wanted either the frames made up with their own scrip lenses or the lenses with the RB logo etc on them to go into their own frames.

Can a member please advise if the pre 1995 frames were Italian?

Hello,

Thank you for the post. I spoke to Ray-Ban and they said although they were base in Ney York their prodcut had been coming from Italy for quite some time. They assure me that the RB3025 have always came from Italy even before ownership by Luxottica.
