TVR®519 American Collection is moulded after President John F. Kennedy’s favourite sunglasses — the custom-made Saratogas in his favoured colour, the tortoise shell aka demi amber. TVR®519 carries a sophisticated look; a distinct angled curvature marked with a slightly oversized shape originating from the original Saratogas. The slimmer arms are quite significant, as are the diamond-shaped rivets that secure the hinges. As a staple eyepiece shape famous in the 1960s, TVR® has also added an extra feature to the design of the TVR®519 — a special custom-made clip on the side of the temple for easy fastening on pockets or sleeves.
This special design is originally made for the president himself when he was presented with a pair of Saratogas. Based on his favourite colours — Tortoise Shell and Demi Amber — the TVR®519 will come in Classic Black, Matte Classic Black, Antique Tortoise and Matte Demi Amber colour options; complementary to JFK’s signature image of a sophisticated man and leader. JFK preferred lenses that were polaroid (known today as polarized), as their glare-cutting qualities were perfect for the man of his caliber. Bearing that in mind, TVR®519 will also be available in polarized lenses, for that extra edge.

TVR© uses only these time-tested methods to create “revivals” of its classics frames. 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, particularly from the Yaemon family of master hand-craftsmen whose family started the production of Celluloid (plastic) frame glasses in 1953. Having spent over 60 years producing high quality handmade Celluloid frames, this family-owned old factory is one of the very few factories existing in Sabae that produces handmade eyewear. And with very limited pieces produced by hand every month by these artisans, TVR® promises a delivery of a true vintage piece that will stand the test of time.
