  • This 'Made In Germany' frame has lost its maker's mark, but

    we recognise it as a Helmecke design. In 1960's Britain very

    few German eyewear manufacturers got a look in, when NHS

    specs were the cheap, accessible option for most. The import

    duty on already expensive frames from the likes of Optura,

    Marwitz, Rodenstock and Helmecke made them exclusive, but

    not out of reach for some, who obviously appreciated the

    quality. We have gone one step further with this optical quality

    frame by adding our mineral glass sun lenses in the classic G15

    tint. This gives this pair of sunglasses the authentic period feel

    and heft. 1960's European excellence in a Brexit Britain. Or

    perhaps back to the 60's for real, before Britain even joined the

    EC. Whatever floats your boat.
