SWISS EYEWEAR ARRIVES IN TAMWORTH
Introducing Von Arkel Switzerland – the sleek new technical eyewear collection for men and women. The Von Arkel brand reflects an undisguised love for micromechanics and the high art of Swiss watchmaking, all directed in the pursuit of a perfectly finished product. Incorporating their revolutionary hinge design, the collection embodies the convergence of style, technology, and exclusivity.
WHAT MAKES VON ARKEL FRAMES UNIQUE
The iconic and distinctive feature of Von Arkel frames is the Caliber hinge. It is the only hinge of its kind in the world. A technological marvel, the hinge is made using the same fusion of tempered steel and polishing techniques used in watchmaking. It offers exceptional solidity and sturdiness.
With neither screws, nor glue, soldering, or rivets, its mechanism allows the lenses to be tightened while ensuring freedom of arm movement thanks to integrated friction regulation.
A MARRIAGE OF EYEWEAR AND WATCHMAKING
Von Arkel eyewear is essentially the successful marriage of eyewear design innovation with the legacy of Swiss watchmaking precision. The Von Arkel concept developed in a region known worldwide for its expertise in eyewear and watchmaking. This concept combines the best of both worlds.
Just one hour from Von Arkel’s Switzerland headquarters, the Morez Valley in the French Jura is the birthplace of the great French eyewear industry. The hinges are made in Jura Switzerland, the cradle of watchmaking know-how, by master bar turners. The resulting product truly integrates with the Swiss values of innovation.
In the men’s range, the frames stand out with their timeless and assertive design. A marvel of technicality and reliability, the hinge brings a touch of distinction and originality.
Elegant, modern, refined – the design in the women’s Von Arkel range features a highly crafted hinge, reminiscent of the most precious of jewels. Truly a piece of fine jewellery, it brings a touch of luxury and exclusivity with utmost discretion.
