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.
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.
We use sun-lenses made from Nylon Polyamide (also known as military grade) because no other material offers a better combination of being scratch resistant, lightweight, UV protective, chemical resistant, strength and optimal clarity of vision.
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.
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.
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.
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.
18KT GOLD PLATED HEX HEAD SCREWS.
Sourced from Swiss watch factories, these are the strongest screws that will never tarnish or burr.
INDIAN BUFFALO HORN.
We use sustainably harvested Indian buffalo horn, as it’s a connection to the optical technics of our forefathers. 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.
ZEISS NYLON LENSES with Z LOGO and GOLD ET AR COATED.
Carl ZEISS is the world leader in photographic, telescopic and optical lenses. Their diversity in lenses and standardised testing far exceed the normal Optical industry standards and ensure your vision is at its optimal.
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.
We use 6061 Aeronautical grade Aluminium because it’s highly resistant to corrosion, lightweight and the surface can be nished in a distinct unique nish.
