The Aviator Made for those who see things differently.

SkyTec™ lenses provide the clearest view to
ensure you don’t miss a thing.
Performance Lens Coatings
Developed with military aviation in mind to safeguard a pilot’s most important sensory asset – vision. Features 100% UVA/UVB for protection and anti-reflective coating to cut light reflection even further for maximum comfort.
Our Iconic temples were designed to slide easily under pilot headsets, helmets and other headgear. Which means comfort. We also calculate the exact angle of our temple bend to prevent headache that may result from undue temple pressure.
The real deal. Our Aviators are built to precise military standards (Mil-S-25948, to be exact). Battle tested and suitable for the most demanding situations, these glasses are worn by U.S. military pilots, tastemakers, and those who demand the best.
From their unique bayonet temples that are designed to fit comfortably under headgear, to the lifetime frame warranty, the Aviator has become our flagship product and has set the standard for our world-class quality.

For the individualists, the singular, the uncommon. For those with a spirit that’s hard to define and a story that needs to be told.
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.
23K Gold and Other Premium Metals
The same precious metal finishes found on the world’s finest timepieces are layered on at up to 5x the industry standard.
Handmade and Detail-Driven
It takes our 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.
Hand-cut and bent to flawlessly form each component.
The bridge, hinges and other components are soldered by hand.
Porcelain and ceramic granules polish each frame to absolute perfection.
Signature Bayonet Temples Fit for Pilots,
Designed for Total Comfort
Our Iconic Bayonet temples were designed to slide easily under pilot headsets, helmets and other headgear. Which means pure comfort and ease. We also calculate the exact angle of the bend on the Skull temple to prevent headaches that may sometimes occur from undue temple pressure.
TRANSPORT IN STYLE
All frames come with a leather case and a microfiber cleaning cloth that doubles as a pouch.
