  • Made using the new 'plastic', Optyl, in the late 70's. Optyl

    was developed by Carrera and their list of clients included

    Dunhill and later, Paloma Picasso. Dior still make their

    frames from this very light, versatile polymer but when

    this was made nearly 40 years ago, they has a factory

    in North America. Afterwards all Optyl products were

    made in either Germany or Austria, at the Carrera plant.

    This model, Dior's 648, was extremely popular as we have

    found it in different sizes and colourways, this the amber/

    brown/honeyed tones in the larger 54mm size.

    NB: Optyl needs extra care when glazing and we would

    recommend us glazing it for you as we guarantee the

    frame during the glazing process if we use our optical lab.
