I've mentioned here a few times our ongoing opticals development -- and I am pleased and proud to declare that it is now finished.
We have made three frames in total: two from tortoiseshell acetate and gold, and one from matted black acetate and gold.
They are made by a place down the road from our workshop, here in London, which opened its doors in 1930, and has been toiling away with much the same contraptions ever since. It is the last such factory in Britain -- a four-storey museum-grade monument to quality opticals -- and surely the last of its kind anywhere in the world, being as they make almost all of the frame -- the 100+ operations which go into it -- by hand.
It took a fair old while, but yes -- done.
