A mainstay for modern life, KameManNen's 142 presents a sleek update on a classic silhouette. Akin to 9950, it's a slimline wayfarer-esque silhouette with titanium lining to the interior edging of the acetate lens rims. The 142 takes this detailing further with titanium temples and hinges that gracefully clasp the front of the frame.
For over a century, KameManNen's goal has stayed the same: to produce durable, beautiful products that will be loved for a long time.
The manufacturing process is time-consuming, pushing both product and maker to the ‘utmost limit’ to meet this goal.
A crane lives a thousand years, a turtle ten thousand years Tsuru wa sennen, Kame wa mannen in Japanese.
Meticulously designed and painstakingly constructed using the finest Japanese materials, each and every KameManNen frame is a timeless work of functional art. Humble artisanal masters with generations of experience make every exquisite piece by hand using the time-tested techniques they have expertly refined since the brand's origins in 1917.
