SUPER RARE Vintage Oakley Sub Zero 0.3 sunglasses MINT Picture(s) and Description:


*** MORE PICTURES BELOW!! *** Up for auction is a pair of genuine Oakley Sub Zero sunglasses from the early 1990s. Model 0.3. There were 4 Zero models: 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.4. The 0.3 model was the most radical design and is also the rarest. A real far-out design that probably had limited sales appeal. The pair in this auction was given to me as a gift in the early 1990s. I am the original owner. I loved the design, but frankly, it wasn't really my style so I only wore them 2 or 3 times. The name Sub Zero derives from the very low weight of these glasses. I believe all of the models are under an ounce. When you wear them, you can't even tell they are on due to their extreme weightlessness. The pair in this auction is the first generation of Zeros. The first generation is the cleanest design and are the most desirable models. I think the later designs are too "busy" and prefer the simple lines of the first generation. Oakley collectors seem to agree. Auction includes the sunglasses, original box, carrying bag, and owner's manuals. I believe everything that originally came with the sunglasses is included; nothing is missing. There are 28 detailed high-resolution pictures below, so if they don't load completely, press F5 on your keyboard to refresh. The sunglasses are in absolutely mint condition. As stated above, I only wore them 2 or 3 times in casual settings only. I didn't wear them bike riding or during any other sport. They have been stored in the box in my closet for most of their life. They are in like-new condition. The lenses only have a very small scratch on the inside that was there when they were new. The scratch isn't noticeable when wearing. I tried to photograph it, but it doesn't show up. I hesitate to even mention it, but want to be as thorough as possible in my description. The nosepiece has no distortion or evidence of wear. It is still soft and supple like it was when new. No damage or wear to the frame or earpieces. There is a slight smudge in the center of the frame where the Oakley logo is, but it was there when they were new. Like the scratch on the lens, I believe this is the way they came from the factory. The hinges are both perfect as are the earsocks (the rubber pieces near the end of the earpieces). There is no edge wear on the lens at all. No issues at all with the frame. Again, it would be hard to distinguish these from new. But to be totally clear, they are used. The box is in very good condition and not coming apart. There is a tear from when the box was opened for the first time. The metal Oakley logo is glued to the box, so a small tear will result when the box is opened. I imagine the only boxes that aren't torn in this area are ones that were never opened. Since this was a gift, the original price sticker was removed from one end of the box. This tore the smooth surface of the cardboard off and has left a rough spot (see picture). The corrugated slip-on cover is in excellent condition and still fits the box nice and tight. The carrying bag is also like-new. Oakley recommends cleaning the lens with the carrying bag and clear water. All of the original documentation is included. With the original box and accessories, this would make an awesome display in a vintage Oakley collection. These sunglasses represent the time when Oakley was really hitting its rhythm in innovative designs. The 1990s is my favorite period in Oakley's history when the designs were bold and like nothing else out there. These 0.3 glasses were perhaps Oakley's most revolutionary design ever. The only model that can challenge that assertion would be the Over The Top model. It is a tossup which is more radical! I doubt designs this bold will ever be made again, even by Oakley. Before listing these, I did some research on the Internet and was shocked by how many people are looking for these. Here's your chance to get the rarest Oakley model in like-new condition! A great investment that will only increase in value as these become even more scarce. Sunglasses and accessories will be carefully returned to the original box. The box will be packed in a sturdy shipping box with foam peanuts to ensure safe delivery anywhere in the world. Auction starts at only 99 cents and no reserve! I ship worldwide and accept all payment methods, including credit cards through PayPal. Please view photos carefully. I will promptly answer any questions you have. All questions will receive a response. Thank you and good luck!
