First introduced in the 1920s, this Panto shaped model is homage to the 20th Century
masters of arts, fashion and architecture. An Andy Warhol style staple, the TVR® 505 is
the perfect frame for both men and women thanks to its pantoscopic view and rounder
shape. The double diamond rivets from the 80s complete the modern classic look that’s
versatile for any fashion appetite. Customers and aficionados would also be able to
enjoy the exquisite artistry of master craftsman Sawada-Yaemon whose family of master
craftsmen started back in the Edo period.
The collection features two sizes — 46mm and 49mm — with a patented metal core and
Japanese engraving depicting The Great Wave of Kanagawa patterns to keep each
piece unique. It is also important to note that TVR® creates small-batch collections to
keep the authenticity and artisanal qualities of each eyepiece at pristinely maintained —
and even the materials are sourced from small-batch artisans in Japan.
TVR® uses only the original templates and blueprints in the creation process of our frames,
along with original moulds where available. It is a creation process passed on from generations
to selected artisans with a superior commitment to quality.
