James Bond (actor Daniel Craig) has a lot of equipment that suits his style, including Omega watches and Aston Martin cars. Now, the character has updated his sun specs – donning a pair of vintage Vuarnet sunglasses in the new movie Spectre.
His shades are a good choice for 007: the lenses are made of the same telescopic glass that NASA uses to look to the sky. The Skilynx lenses eradicate all glare from the sun and accentuate contrast on a white background such as snow and ice. The shades have leather side shields to prevent peripheral disturbances.
While the ones worn in the movie are a vintage Glacier Eclipse style that is no longer available, there are some great current VUARNET Glacier sunglasses on the market that are perfect for summer — at a price of about $600. Whether it’s summer or winter, we all need a good pair of shades.
