THE BRAND


In the 18th Century, in the heart of Switzerland’s “Vallée de Joux” in the Jura region,
the art of watchmaking was taking on a new dimension, driven by passionate artisans. Extreme precision, attention to detail, immeasurable quality, and a constant culture of innovation – together, all of these elements gave rise to the art of fine watchmaking. With their revolutionary hinge, the Von Arkel frames combine exclusive and elegant style with unrivalled technicality drawn directly from watchmaking talent.

THE ONLY HINGE OF ITS KIND IN THE WORLD SWISS MADE


A technological marvel, the Von Arkel hinge is made using the same fusion of tempered steel and polishing techniques used in watchmaking. It offers exceptional solidity and sturdiness.

With neither screws, nor glue, soldering, or rivets, its mechanism allows the lenses to be tightened while ensuring freedom of arm movement thanks to integrated friction regulation.

DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY


An unfaltering passion for high-quality frames. Consummate knowledge drawn from the world of engineering, physics, and micro-mechanics. Von Arkel frames symbolise the convergence of style, technology, and exclusivity.

The Von Arkel brand’s signature characteristic – the hinge – is made exclusively in Switzerland, bringing together all the advantages of the ‘Swiss Made’ concept: unparalleled excellence in the hinge-creation process, quality, precision, innovation, and reliability.
