See the world from a fresh perspective in the Norton, as seen in No Time To Die (2020). 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. A keyhole bridge gives the design an established feel, while the round lenses add a natural element that is wearable and minimal.
Details. The handmade frame is built 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 sunglasses have CR-39 lenses, finished with 007 inscribed temples.
Dimensions. Eye size 50mm, bridge size 21mm, temple length 153mm
