they are both Camerra and I think they are the only two pairs

Both available from now as they are from the 70's therefore only those pairs at the moment

If you want prices I can find out for you?

If you want to be able to see through the reflections on the surface of water or on windows, definitely.

They do cut out quite a lot of glare and will give you sharper vision.

Not absolutely necessary, but you really will notice the difference between polarised lenses and non-polarised, so if you can afford it then it's worth it in my opinion.

Approximately, yes. Depends on the exact measurements, for example thickness of the acetate, and the width of the bridge. See if you can find a bridge measurement for both, should be around the 16 or 17 mark I'd have thought.

Is 54mm the biggest size of rayban wayfarer?

Any recommended sites for them? Sorry more than likely been asked a million times.

Yes 54 is the biggest, and those links at the top of the page are your best bet for good prices.

They're a registered UK company and have an office in Rickmansworth, but it seems from a bit of digging that the parent company might actually be Austrian.

But they're legit as far as I know, and are definitely active in the UK.
