Inspired by iconic characters featured in the James Bond films, the newly announced Goldfinger and B Fourteen, join the Thunderball and AVTAK, released in November 2021.
The Goldfinger pays homage to a pair of Persol 828 sunglasses worn by Sean Connery on the set of Goldfinger (1964) in Switzerland, while filming the famous car chase scenes.
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.
The limited edition sport wrap design have polished zylonite frames with polarised lenses that are finished with anti-reflection coating ,and feature a secret breath detail of the 1962-era 007 logo. The original 1962 007 logo is also featured on a plaque on the temple tip of each frame.
The Goldfinger are available in:
- Black / Nocaturnal
- Matte Midnight / Nocturnal
- Absinthe / Commando
- Matte Chestnut / Sequoia
- Matte Dusk / November Rain
