In the 21st century, while men wear high quality watches and handmade shoes, Pascal Mathieu offers high-end eyewear products. Sunglasses handmade in small quantities in our workshop in the French Jura, 1 hour north of Geneva. The know-how used is that of the greatest watchmakers and jewellers.
The sunglasses are designed by hand and modeled in 3D in Chamonix Mont-Blanc. Steel, commonly used in watchmaking, was chosen for its solidity and the beauty of its reflections. The steel is placed into a drum to be brushed using the same know-how of high end jewelry.The hinges are welded thanks to a machine requiring 25 different settings. Aluminum, commonly used in aviation and technological products for its lightness and strength, is machined with a 5-axis CNC machine.
After 78 stages by 23 different craftsmen, each frame is checked under a magnifying glass and a microscope
