Main Beach Optical are pleased to stock exclusive Von Arkel frames.
Von Arkel frames have their origins in a two hundred year old Swiss watchmaking tradition. Blending centuries of craftsmanship with modern technology. Von Arkel frames are characterised by their precision, technicality and elegant styling.
The frames are made using fusion of tempered steel and polishing techniques with metallic components coloured via a high tech process to achieve deep and distinctive colour saturation.
Perhaps the most striking aspect of a Von Arkel frame is their highly crafted hinge. The patented hinge design was created and refined over a two year period to ensure strength coupled with freedom of movement and has no screws, glue or rivets.
Classically beautiful, unfussy and delicately balanced, these superior frames are some of the very best on the market. Each frame is lightweight yet sturdy, and resistant to scratches and marks. Frame finishes include stainless steel, acetate and titanium.
