Omega Launches New Luxury Sunglasses Inspired By Its Iconic Timepieces
After its recent release of James Bond’s No Time To Die Seamaster watch, Omega is venturing into the luxury eyewear world with a new collection of sunglasses for both men and women. Designed in collaboration with Italian eyewear company Marcolin, all six styles are inspired by the intricate details and materials used in Omega’s iconic timepieces.
While it’s not the first time that the Swiss watchmaker applies its expertise to creating sunglasses (it launched its first eyewear collection in 2016), its new offering for 2020 has been given a new edge. The resemblance to Omega’s heritage timepieces is in every detail, whether it’s the materials used across the frames, or features inspired by crowns and bezels, the meticulous construction of the sunglasses is a reflection of the brand’s unyielding standard of precision and craftsmanship, without compromising style.
The sunglasses are priced from HK$3,950 to HK$8,350, with the most expensive of them all being the aviator-style shades with a vintage look inspired by the Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary in “Moonshine gold”, featuring gold metal frames with wine-red temple tips.
