Many consider the 18kt Beaufort Eyeglasses with Half-Covered Cable Temples to represent the pinnacle of Savile Row’s achievements in custom-made vintage-style frames. Each pair is hand made to order at Savile Row’s historic Algha Works factory in East London. The rolled gold frames feature a core of durable Monel metal fused with a coating of 18kt gold, in a process that deposits a layer of gold up to 20 times thicker than that found on gold-plated framesa thickness designed to stand up to a lifetime of wear and tear. Notable as the frames Indiana Jones wore in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Savile Row Beaufort eyeglasses are among the most recognizable frames in the world today.
