Celebrating the forthcoming 60th anniversary of the James Bond film series, this limited-edition design is a reimagining of the aviator silhouette worn by Max Zorin in A View To A Kill.
The 007 Avtak Black Satin / Gold / Smolder Sunglasses by Barton Perreira have a titanium frame surrounding a lens with invisible Zorin detailing that only reveals itself when breathed on.
Details. Handmade in Japan, the design has a fine titanium metal frame with a uniquely modified angled aviator silhouette. A combination of smooth and textured detailing creates a multi-layered affect across the bridge and temples. CR39 lens with anti-reflection coating features a breath logo that reveals the Zorin ‘Z', while temple tips feature the 1962-era 007 logo mark. The sunglasses are presented in a limited edition Barton Perreira x 007 Legacy Collection case with cleaning cloth.
Barton Perreira believe that every pair of glasses should fit as perfectly as a well-tailored piece of clothing, and these limited edition frames are handmade in Japan by highly skilled craftsman, focused on perfecting every detail.
Dimensions. Lens 61mm, bridge 15mm, temple length 145mm
