If you are a quintessential aviator lover, the latest offering from leading polarized sunglass maker Maui Jim — a vibrant and sophisticated aviator with a retro classic twist – is the ideal new accessory for you!
‘Castles’ is a sophisticated addition to Maui Jim’s growing family of aviators and is inspired by the classic aviator style that comes with a full rim frame and a double bridge.
This refined aviator style features classic design constructed with a monel metal and nickel silver frame with SuperThin Glass lenses, and is a great choice for consumers demanding a durable, comfortable, high-performing sunglass. Monel has a copper and nickel base, and is corrosion resistant, strong, and easily adjusted. It retains its stability and shape for a long period of time.
Castles also features adjustable rubber nose pads providing wearers with additional stability during any activity. Its classic aviator shape best complements oval or oblong face shapes. In addition if you have a slightly long nose, this pair of sunglasses will appear to be custom made for you.
Castles style works well for people who like to present classic and sporty appearances and goes with a wide variety of styles choices from everyday casual to fashion forward. It fits in as well with your daily driving and walking routine as it does with a sunny hip outing.
The aviator is one of the world’s most widely used and loved styles, appreciated by men and women who like to keep it elegant yet simple. Castles offers a fresh new take on the aviator design with a fusion of contemporary and classic style.
The modern updated aviator is a superior choice for wind, sun, glare and UV protection as it covers the complete periphery of the eye.
“Aviators have always been one of the most loved sunglass designs for their versatility and elegance. They offer a unique combination of sophistication with style. No wonder, there is a dedicated fan following for aviators which laps up any new style on the market shelves. With Castles we offer something new and unique to the dedicated aviator lover. Castles is a highly refined and sophisticated design that perpetuates a contemporary feel while retaining the classic touch of the retro aviator. We are sure customers will love this pair,” says Mr. I Rahumathullah, Managing Director, Maui Jim India.
Castles is available in three interesting color combinations, in both matte and high-gloss finish: Matte black frame with neutral grey lens; matte chocolate frame with HCL Bronze; and satin dark gunmetal frame with Maui Rose lens.
Maui Jim’s PolarizedPlus2® lenses wipe out 99.9 percent of glare, manage 95 percent of HEV and block 100 percent of harmful UV while boosting color to unmatched levels. Maui Jim’s optically correct, distortion-free lenses feature patented lens treatments or rare earth elements. So instead of dimming the light, color and clarity are enhanced using natural light. All Maui Jim sunglasses have been recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin.
Proper UV protection is critical, as ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun plays a significant role in the development of skin cancer. About 86 percent of melanomas and 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to the sun’s UV rays.
