TVR® Arnel® is a special remake of the classic rounded horn-rim shape made famous by
the legendary James Dean in his glory days. Using the Datum Expression Size method,
the Arnel® shape or also known as the JD frame is usually patented using Japanese
4mm celluloid to accentuate the luster and shine of the material. Its slim profile also adds
comfort and better fit. The updated iteration is meticulously crafted by hand by TVR®’s
master craftsman in Sabae, Japan, Sawada-Yaemon.
With over six decades of experience in mastering the artistry of eyewear-making,
every piece is assured of its handcrafted beauty, impeccable quality and the signature
characteristics including the SPM (Sun Platinum Metal) spear rivets, keyhole bridge,
seven-barrel hinges and mitre cutting by hand.
To celebrate the overwhelming support and encouraging response from customers over
the years, TVR® OPT will be offering this 2020 edition using Zylonite material, featuring
the intricate Japanese engraving depicting The Great Wave of Kanagawa on the metal
core in this classic frame that comes with a modern twist.
