Von Arkel

A LEGACY OF PASSION

In the 18th Century, in the heart of Switzerland’s “Vallée de Joux” in the Jura region, the
art of watchmaking was taking on a new dimension, driven by passionate artisans.

Extreme precision, attention to detail, immeasurable quality, and a constant culture of innovation – together, all of these elements gave rise to the art of fine watchmaking. Over two centuries later, the Von Arkel brand has inherited from this exceptional tradition, bringing it – for the first time ever – to the world of luxury eyewear.

The Von Arkel frames combine exclusive and elegant style with unrivalled technicality drawn directly from watchmaking talent.

Behind their pure and timeless design, Von Arkel frames are a veritable technological marvel.

SWISS MADE HINGE

The Von Arkel hinge is made using the same fusion of tempered steel and polishing techniques used in watchmaking. It offers exceptional solidity and sturdiness, making it more resistant to scratches and marks. With neither screws, nor glue or rivets, its mechanism allows the lenses to be tightened while ensuring freedom of arm movement thanks to integrated friction regulation.
