Von Arkel - Swiss made

 

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. With their revolutionary hinge, the Von Arkel frames combine exclusive and elegant style with unrivalled technicality drawn directly from watchmaking talent. And now, you too can enjoy this savoir-faire.

Behind their pure and timeless design, Von Arkel frames are a veritable technological marvel. Revolutionary in the eyewear universe, the patented hinge has been entirely designed and developed in the very cradle of fine watchmaking, the “Vallée de Joux”. It is the brain-child of Dubois-Dépraz company and the result of over two years’ research and development.

The hinge is available in two calibres: 8.0 and 9.0.

True masterpieces created with absolute virtuosity.

We are very pleased to stock this fantastic Swiss range!

Clarity First Depot for Contact Lens Packaging Recycling in Queensland

 

Bausch + Lomb Australia has partnered with TerraCycle to facilitate recycling of contact lenses and blister packs for the first time. Any brand of used contact lenses and blister packs can be recycled for free.
“Bausch + Lomb is incredibly conscious of its environmental impact, and wants to offer its customers a better solution for their used products,” said Geraldine Maraboli, Bausch + Lomb Australia. “We are calling on anyone who wears contact lenses to sign up to the programme and help divert their lenses and blister packs from landfill.”
You are able to drop your Contact Lens packaging into Clarity Optometrists Bulimba! Or you can log on to the Terracycle website and send them directly to them. Once signed up, wearers collect their used contact lenses and blister packs in any box, download a prepaid shipping label from the TerraCycle website, attach it to the box, and drop off their package at any Australia Post outlet. The used contact lenses and blister packs collected by TerraCycle will be recycled into sustainable products and materials.
The recycling programme also gives back by making a AU$1 donation to Optometry Giving Sight for every kilogram of accepted waste sent through the programme.

Vision for Life.
