Description


Exceedingly rare pair of Apple ‘rainbow’ sunglasses that Steve Wozniak had custom made by an optometrist circa 1979. The sunglasses have Metzler-TWE 145 frames and feature vibrant rainbow-colored lenses designed in the shape of the iconic Apple logo. One of a limited issue of 30, these sunglasses include its original sleeve, hardshell case, and cleaning cloths. In fine condition, with only some light wear to the original box/sleeve. The cover of Steve Carr’s 1984 book, WOZ: the Prodigal Son of Silicon Valley, depicts Wozniak wearing a pair of these totally hip sunglasses. Squirreled away for 40 years, this is the ultimate accessory for the discerning Apple fan.

Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Wozniak: "Around 1979, I had an optometrist in Palo Alto custom make 30 pairs of these glasses with lenses in the shape and rainbow colors of the original Apple logo. It was a project, just for fun. It's amazing to see these over forty years later, with the original box, case and cleaning cloths."
