While most eyewear companies choose a hinge from an off-the-shelf catalog, we designed our own. Actually, we designed dozens and carefully selected one (option #3) out of our five favorite designs.
Why should you care about a hinge? The hinge is the only structure on your frame that is dynamic (meaning, it moves!). If it is of low quality it is usually the first component to break. Spring hinges should always be avoided on acetate frames as they are a sure sign of low quality or an ill fitting frame design.
On the other side of the spectrum, our hinge is top tier quality: 5 barrel, precision milled with genuine rivets and coated screws. We even laser etch our logo to ensure authenticity.
It is designed to last. We hope you enjoy it for many years to come.
