The James Bond 007 Thunderball Sunglasses - Dusk / Marine Polarised Edition - By Barton Perreira is a limited-edition design paying homage to Bond in Thunderball (1965). The sunglasses have polished zylonite frames and polarised lenses with invisible detailing that only reveals itself when you breath on them.
Details. The handmade frame is built in Japan from zylonite acetate containing metal core wiring to provide a skeletal foundation with supreme comfort and a flexible fit. The signature lightweight feel of the sunglasses is due to the resin-based polymer plastic used. Zylonite is tumbled for several days before being hand polished twice to create a seamlessly smooth surface. This material selection and uncompromising process results in a light, durable product with a deep gloss finish.
Polarised lenses are finished with anti-reflection coating and feature a secret breath detail of the 1962-era 007 logo. Temple tips feature the 1962 007 logo. 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 51mm, bridge 21mm, temple length 148mm
