P3 in 23K Gold with Gray Glass Lenses

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.

Metal Bending

Hand-cut and bent to flawlessly form each component.

Soldering

The bridge, hinges and other components are soldered by hand.

Tumbling

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.

  1. 5 out of 5 Randolph Never Fails To Exceed My Expectations

    I bought a set of cheap round sunglasses to see if I liked the style, and figured I’d upgrade to a real pair after deciding that I liked the style. While I was considering other brands, I have always loved my gold Randolph Aviators I bought about a year ago, and much to my pleasure the P3s came in a timely manner and WOW are they well built with incredibly clear optics. I have started really encouraging friends and family looking for new sunglasses to check out Randolph, I feel as if they are better than any other major sunglasses brand out there including a few that are more expensive/designer. I love that they are American made, but, again, the real satisfaction in these products come with how robust the frames and hinges are, and how high quality the glass is. The rose gold color on the P3 rounds out my collection of sunglasses in both style and color and is very stylish. Absolutely recommend these glasses, and all Randolph products I’ve encountered, especially for the price.

  2. 5 out of 5 Great prescription frames

    I have three pairs of Randolph P3s, one is my prescription, one is my prescription in sunglasses and one pair is regular sunglasses. I find the ear cables very secure for sailing, and the frames are indestructible

  4. 5 out of 5 Awesome Eyewear

    The P3s are excellent quality as promised. I am happy with my choice and they function very well. I do have two comments:
    If I had had the choice, I probably would have picked black chrome over bright chome.
    I was uncertain whether the cable temples would be awkward to put on one-handed, but that proved to be no problem. The one criticism about them is that the curve is slightly too pronounced so the end presses on my ear a little. I guess they are made of memory wire so you can’t loosen the curve.
    Having said that, I am still pleased and would buy them again.

  5. 5 out of 5 Randolph

    I switched to Randolph sunglasses in the early 1990s and haven’t worn anything else since. Excellent quality. Highly recommended.

  6. 5 out of 5 Excellent quality!

    This is the third pair I’ve purchased. The first got scratched up in an accident and now are my “backup” pair. The second got smashed by my dog jumping up on me and are not repairable. This third pair should keep seeing what I need to see! Very impressed with the quality, workmanship and service!

  12. 5 out of 5 P3

    The P3 is a delight in engineering, function, and design. The mineral glass lenses and metal assembly are without flaw. One can pay significantly more for a fantasy in plastic. Recommended without qualification.

  13. 5 out of 5 Unsurpassed!!!

    well made, classic design, good value in a market where price doesn't necessarily mean quality….
    if I could get the P-3 Shadow with glass lenses and cable temples I would order them as well….

    Unsurpassed!!!

  15. 5 out of 5 Fantastic & High Quality

    Ordered these after trying on a different style of P3's at a store.

    Superb quality and craftsmanship. The glasses feel great in the hand, there's a real sturdiness to them. The nose pads do not slide off during sweating.

    As an aside, if I were in the market for aviators, I would strongly urge folks to have a look at Randolph's line.

    Fantastic & High Quality
