KameManNen – Since1917

The history of KameManNen, which is said to be the oldest eyewear brand in Japan, began in 1917 at the city of Fukui, with a plating factory called “Kimura Seisakusho”. After the Second World War, this was developed to an eyewear factory based in Sabae and KameManNen was born. In 1981 KameManNen successfully used titanium, which is known for its durability and lightness to produce eyewear for the first time in the world, introducing Sabae’s high production quality to the world. The name KameManNen came from a Japanese proverb, “A crane lives a thousand years, a turtle ten thousand years” (Tsuru wa sennen, Kame wa mannen in Japanese. A proverb depicts longevity)”, which was the desire of the founder, Kikujiro Kimura. The brand aspires to continue the concept of KameManNen to pursue not only the beauty of the design itself, but also precise production of eyewear of the highest quality.

DITA – Emitter -One

Dita Emitter One is Dita´s next limited edition and will be available at André Opticas boutiques very soon.

Micro produced in a limited number of units, EMITTER-ONE speaks without saying a word through its details including high quality Japanese acetate frame, exposed custom pressed line temple tip plate, and titanium 5-barrel oversized hinge plate with exposed pressed line detail.

EMITTER-ONE shows design mastery by reaching beyond maximalism, pushing the limits and reaching tasteful overstatement.

EMITTER-ONE was born from embracing the negative space that surrounds, expanding the conscious mind to evolve in awareness to the overflow of complex details. EMITTER-ONE is an extension of this profound realization that gave way to its design and has joined the ranks of DITA’s Limited Edition frames.

DITA Flight 006 for André Opticas

We celebrate our 40th anniversary this year and among the many ways we have chosen to celebrate this moment was the production of a new limited series, with one of the most important brands of eyewear in the world, DITA, a brand that is a reference and needs no introduction.

With high-end glasses made in Japan, using only the finest and noblest materials, and which has millions of followers, DITA is the choice of countless personalities from the world music, cinema and arts.
Together with DITA, we re-edited FLIGHT 006, which became one of the biggest bestsellers ever when they were used by Tom Holland in the film Spider Man, Far From Home and Robert Downey Jr in the role of Iron Man in the avengers infiniy war, the famous Edith.

AndréOpticas X DITA Flight 006 is, however, even more special than DITA’s own Flight 006 of which only a few thousand are produced for the world market.
André Opticas FLIGHT 006 was executed in a special edition, 40 units, available only in André Opticas boutiques and in the online store.

Each piece has its own serial number and comes signed with the collaboration seal of the two brands. A unisex shape, built in Japanese Titanium, eyepieces in cotton acetate, titanium temples with end tips printed with the classic diamond pattern. A piece that is already a classic, turned into a true collector model.

TVR – True Vintage Revival


A piece of soul into a pair of eyewear

There are no rocket science tools or methods used in the making of True Vintage Revival (TVR) eyeglasses. Known as the home to handmade eyeglasses, Sabae, Japan has created a positive impression to connoisseurs of the industry as a breeding land for talented artisans who have developed their skills and an eye for precision that are said to be better than machines. And here’s where every piece of TVR eyeglasses are made.

Using mainly hand tools that are passed down from master to apprentice, most of these museum-worthy pieces carry some of the most prolific history in eyewear evolution. Vintage design features are greatly highlighted in the making of the TVR classics. These include the keyhole-bridge, functional spear rivets, 7-barrel hinges, and miter cut techniques that are boldly executed with the unrivalled skills and technical know-hows. Piece by piece, every one of a TVR eyewear is honed with decades of expertise by selected artisans from Sabae.

Each pair of glasses starts with the “Datum Expression Size” technique, a specialized measurement method commonly used during the 50s in Japan to obtain the subtle balance of the eyewear. TVR also refers to only original templates and blueprints in the creation process of these first-class traditional optical frames. Once the frame takes shape, the craftsmen will begin adjusting every little details with intricate care and precision.

It is easily overlooked that what is now called vintage was once brand new. As TVR continues to bring forth authentic vintage styles with traditional skills, iconic designs and high-quality materials, we are also paving the way for classic vintage eyeglasses to once again be mainstream through true vintage revival.
