Preciosa is the Dutch vintage spectacle brand, distinctive for their recognisable style, the manual finish and for the affordability in comparison to foreign vintage brands.The history of the brand goes back to 1936. Even then, Preciosa characterised itself with the somewhat heavier, solid spectacles. Some techniques never age. The rivet hinges are still applied and are still as solid. The finishing polish is still done by craftsmen - the production of Preciosa spectacles requires 80 to 120 specialist actions. Those are done both manually by craftsmen and by modern computer operated machines. Every Preciosa pair of spectacles is crafted with a passion for design and quality.The collection is largely inspired by the popular acetate spectacles from the 1950s and the 1960s.
