Selecta France
Made by Selecta, France,  these vintage sunglasses are gorgeous and the frame is perfect for thick prescriptions.  They have that curved frame side that hides the thickest part of the lens.  They're built the old fashioned way with barrel riveted hinges.  Lenses are dark grey glass.  Clear wide frames for those full faces that have a hard time finding frames big enough.

Such a great pair of sunglasses.  Made in France,  early 1970's vintage.  These are large,  clear,  with dark grey glass lenses.  Double riveted studs everywhere the hinges meet the frame and temples.  Pre-owned in excellent condition with literally no scratches on the lenses.  

Lenses are NOT prescription,  but you can put your own prescription in this frame if you wanted.  
If you have a thick prescription,  this frame is perfect as it has sides that kinda wrap and hide the thickness of the lenses. 

This frame is wide and will suit a rounder fuller face than mine.  I model my specs for point of reference only and I have a very narrow face and typically wear 5" wide frames.  These are 5 1/2" wide and stick out past the sides of my head.
