Named after the Titans, the sons of the Earth Goddess in Greek Mythology, Titanium was discovered in 1791 by British Chemist William Gregor. Famed for its high resistance to corrosion, its non-toxic nature and its biological compatibility with human tissue, it’s the perfect material to use in our latest collection from Continental Eyewear.
What better name than 1791 to acknowledge Gregor’s discovery of the versatile metallic element nearly 250 years ago? Our new collection celebrates the incredible strength and lightweight properties of Titanium whilst marrying brightness and colour with an incredibly thin and ‘lite’ feel. Offering a variety of modern
and classic styles, these minimalistic titanium frames feature high density acetate fronts, promoting a much thinner and more premium look than regular acetate.
The nose pads are comfortable silicone and the titanium material ensures maximum durability and lightness, as well as being hypoallergenic. 1791 is perfect for customers who want a lightweight, luxury Titanium frame without the premium price tag.
