Raptor in Matte Black with AGX 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.




For long lasting clarity
and extreme durability.


Drop Ball Tested

Tested for impact resistance with
a 5/8 inch steel ball from 50 inches.

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.


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.


All frames come with a leather case and a microfiber cleaning cloth that doubles as a pouch.

  1. 3 out of 5 Probably I Just need time to get used...

    Honestly lost my good old RayBan the Aviator which served me well, thus got a legal excuse to buy a Randolph, which longed for long. Red lot of positive feedbacks. Finally it arrived. Well – what can I say? Not very much of disappointment, but very close to. The size is really small , although my face is not so big, rather of modest size, low frame hindrances my ability to look at the instruments ( I am a professional pilot ). And what really annoys me – it is a reflection of my own eyes. I always see my own retina, I never did with my RayBan! Well, may be I will love it, just give me a time, presently I am uncertain – so many positive ratings, may be I just do not understand something. One more point – the case. Extremely soft, very much suited for braking precious content…and buy a new one. So, for the time being – bought a hard metal case from HongKong, trying to get accustomed for Randolph, and… looking for an alternative. Such a pity that http://www.serengeti-eyewear.com/Sunglasses/Products.aspx does not have a non-polarised version! You cannot fly a modern airplane with a polarised one. I like the Serengeti dearly, almost sleep with it, but they are good for driving only. Probably Randolph is good for a helicopter pilot, I am on the Airbus… not sure. Do not want to emphasise too much on a negative features – here are the positive ones – the appearance is really cool, above any expectation, the quality is perfect, and delivery- literally three days across the globe, I am really impressed. Promise to publish a new review once ( if) change my mind. Blue skies for fellow aviators!
