140 years expertise in one unique retro collection

We do not know if Josef Rodenstock worked infinitely long on his first design. But we do know that he created the symbol of eternity by linking the two circles to a timeless pair of glasses. Its strength resides in the circle as the perfect shape. The circle is whole and each point has the same distance to its center: the eye. With the round Retro Classic we have revived this idea of perfect timelessness. And by handmade manufacturing with original rivet hinges and modern materials we have come full circle with Josef Rodenstock.
