In order for your optical frame to be properly fitted, we recommend that you purchase it from a trained optical dispenser, and we’d be more than happy to provide you with the address of your closest one.
INDIAN BUFFALO HORN
We use sustainably harvested Indian buffalo horn. In the past highly regarded materials such as gold, horn and shell were used to make high-end optical frames, we bring back this tradition in a way that ensures animals were not harmed in order to supply us with these materials.
Rather than screwing directly directly into the acetate, we sandwich the acetate between two sheets of Japanese Titanium to ensure it remains stable and doesn’t warp over time.
We secure our logos by rst laser engraving a cavity, deep embedding them and then applying a layer of epoxy over the top. This leaves our logos smooth to the touch, with a luxurious gold appearance and ensures they do not come free.
VISOTTICA COMOTEC HINGES.
We use the superior quality of COMOTEC hinges because their Italian made products receive strenuous testing to ensure their hinges don’t fail when they are put through a hard life.
CUSTOM TITANIUM NOSE PADS WITH ION PLATING.
We have specially developed our nosepads using high-grade titanium that is treated with Ion plating. Unlike many others platings, Ion plating is hypoallergenic which is vital because nose pads are in constant contact with the skin.
THE BLACK SCREWS.
We use black in colour individually laser cut high grade Stainless steel SS304 screws (normally used for high-end Swiss watches) as they are stronger and do not bur like conventional mould injected optical screws.
ITALIAN ACETATE WINDSOR RIM.
A classy detail which can be traced back as early as the 19th century.
18KT GOLD PLATED.
We use 9KT, 18KT or 22KT Gold in the plating of our metal components in order to give our frames the required gold tone to highlight their luxury look.
We use high grade Japanese Titanium because it has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element, making it very lightweight, strong and it’s also highly resistant to corrosion.
CURED ITALIAN ACETATE.
We cure our Italian acetate for an extended period of time in specially designed ovens, ensuring the acetate is in a more stable state when it’s used for production so it’s less likely to warp or twist.
