  • Prior to Luxottica purchasing the Persol brand in 1995,

    their sunglasses were made by the renowned Italian firm

    Ratti who developed the now iconic features that have

    come to symbolise Persol sunglasses: the arrow-head

    hinge shield - nicknamed the Supreme Arrow - and the

    sprung Meflecto temples. Both of these are on display

    in this model, 829, which was made in the late 1980s.

    The hinge shields even have the incised wavy line

    pattern reserved for their top of the range models.

    This pair is slightly worn but the Ratti logo can just be

    seen on inside face of the left temple as can the laser-

    etched Persol logo on the mineral glass lenses. Giuseppe

    Ratti started the company in 1917 making sports

    glasses for drivers and aviators.
