Those looking for a more luxurious take on Ray-Ban‘s timeless and badass Aviator are in luck: the shades are now available in solid 18k gold. Popularized by everyone from General Douglas MacArthur in World War II to the Top Gun pilots, The Beatles and Freddie Mercury, this new edition of the classic 1936 release replaces the usual lightweight metal frames with 18k gold and pairs it with the brand’s own top-of-the-line P3 Plus polarized glass lenses. Retailing for a hefty $3,200 USD, the golden pilot sunglasses are limited to just 1,200 pieces and available now directly from Ray-Ban while supplies last.
