TVR 529 American Classic Vintage

As part of the TVR® OPT 10th Anniversary Edition, the Japanese label releases the TVR 529 that is handcrafted exclusively using 8mm Zylonite Acetate material.

The TVR 529 carries a profound retro-influenced frame reinvented with a modern rounded shape. The frame is thicker around the embossed lenses, prominently highlighting a single high bridge. The classic American vintage is a true revival of the original pilot style — an archetype that combines both the aviator and the Panto design.

Dated since the 1930s, the aviator frames were first introduced to the U.S. Army where jet pilots needed a specific eyewear with better optical protection from harsh sunlight and intense blue sky. The front single top bridge design catapulted to great success by the 1950s and 1960s, where Americans back then were looking for something similar like the aviator yet wearable as an optical eyeglasses with the right lens size.

Where function and fashion meet

The novelty became a cult classic across the globe with its striking single bridge — today updated with rounded and geometric forms. The TVR 529 is an iconic shape inspired by American playwright and writer Arthur Miller, who famously wore this eyeframe in the 1960s. Miller, who was also Marilyn Monroe’s husband, made the strong and bold masculine shape in demand with the profound single brow bar.

Using 8mm Zylonite Acetate material, the newly revived TVR®529 is enhanced with seven-barrel hinge design featuring a series of metal rings (barrels) that fit into each other like a zipper; with a small screw that slides inside to keep the barrels in place. The hinge barrel also adds durability, and is a strong mechanism to guarantee unparalleled quality to every piece hang-produced by TVR® OPT Japan.

Tebori metal core, detailing 17th Century Baroque Style

Illustrating the temples are new metal cores with “Tebori” detailing, 17th Century Baroque style engraved metal cores that give the latest model a subtle yet extravagant finish — only appreciated with a closer look. The new slim temple design is based on the most recent Infinity 8 model, with wider temple tip for better comfort.

The single top bridge is also angled at 45-degree, minute detail that softens the intimidating front while giving the silhouette a pleasant look on its user. Take a look at the keyhole bridge, shaped like a keyhole, and rests on the side of the nose. Glasses with keyhole-bridge design is also one of the most beloved style in optical history. It carries shorter pads on the side of the nose for an enhanced coverage — distributing the weight of the glasses on the side of the nose instead of the top.

Perfect for those with wider noses, the narrow angle on the center of the nose pad brings out the front detail without looking too flat. On its on, the TVR®529 exudes an elegantly soft look that is nuanced balanced, poise, and style.
