BUILT TO MILITARY STANDARDS
We wanted to make a difference. Leave a mark. Be proud of something. So in 1978, we joined forces with the U.S. military to produce the HGU-4/P Aviator for fighter pilots. Each Aviator is built to strict guidelines of MIL-S-25948 standards, a 20-page document detailing the most complex manufacturing specs around.
GUARANTEED FOR A LIFETIME. OR TWO.
Built to a higher standard using the world’s finest materials, we stand by each pair of frames we make. So much so, that we offer a lifetime warranty. Take them with you around the world, and back again.
CORROSION RESISTANCE AND STRENGTH
Randolph Engineering frames provide unequaled solder joint strength and integrity. All finishes are topped with a corrosion-resistant coating for additional frame protection.
HANDMADE AND DETAIL-DRIVEN
It takes RE craftspeople over 6 weeks to build a single pair of Randolph glasses. More than 200 steps go into making each frame—and most of these steps? –- Done by hand!
GUARANTEED FOR LIFE
We stand behind each and every pair of frames with a promise to repair or replace any broken solder joint for the lifetime of the frame.
