DESCRIPTION:

This is very slick pair of Steampunk goggles created from a resurrected pair of AMERICAN OPTICAL vintage driving goggles. They come with removable double magnifier loops for an over-the-top Steampunk look. Some people choose to attach the magnifier loops permanently, but we'll leave that up to you. This is a very unique pair made by a company known for its extremely well constructed goggles and glasses - just look at the beaded detailing on the bridge. There is also small beaded detailing on the frames around the lenses. The frames are rock-solid. It would take a tremendous amount of force to damage these exceptionally strong frames. You know you are holding quality the minute they are in your hands.

This pair has the unique feature of a squared shape to the frames. As a result, these goggles have a little extra pinoch that puts the Ooooo in your cool. The combination of the squarish frames with the mesh side shields looks fantastic. This is also a smaller pair of frames, making them ideal for those looking for a perfect pair of Steampunk goggles with modest proportions for smaller faces. Not big and gangly but small, sleek with a nice squared off look.

CONDITION:

LENSES:
The lenses on this pair have seen some action. There is pitting evenly distributed throughout both lenses and there are small scuff-like scratches on both the left and right lens. These are very thick, high quality lenses and they could perhaps be resurfaced by any professional optician as there is plenty of thick glass to work with.

FRAMES:
The frames are absolutely gorgeous with no pitting or dulling of the finish and only the most minor signs of wear. As the frames are the most unique feature of these goggles, these frames are an exquisite example. As mentioned, there is fine, double-beaded detailing on the bridge and around the lenses that has to be seen to be appreciated. The frames are among the strongest we've ever had, and upon close inspection they appear to be nearly new. A very beautiful specimen of vintage eyewear.

SIDE SHIELDS:
The side shields are also in excellent condition with bright, gleaming silver. There is no pitting, corrosion or discoloration anywhere. They look to be nearly new. They have the same shape as they did the day they were made, which is made more impressive due to the fact that these side shields have some unique contours because the frames are very square. The side shields adapt to this shape with some nice, tight curves that compliment the stunning frames.

EARPIECES - ARMS:
The earpieces are perfect. They are arrow-straight and extremely solid. There is a protective coating on the earpieces that begins about halfway back that will keep these earpieces looking like new - and feeling great! This is a tremendous and unique pair of goggles in truly wonderful condition. Grab these before they are gone as these are the only goggles with this unique style that we have, and only the second pair like it we have ever seen.

MEASUREMENTS:
The goggles measure approximately 120mm wide from hinge to hinge and the lenses measure approximately 40mm high, including the frames - please consider the dimensions when selecting any pair of goggles, and if you have a question please don't hesitate to ask.

* Please remember, these goggles feature professional frames and the lenses can be removed and replaced with custom prescription lenses or lenses with a different tint by any reputable optician.
