TAG Heuer Eyewear‘s line grows by one with the addition of its Squadra Night Vision Optics. There are phrases like ‘opthalmic mask’ and ‘universal nocturnal myopia’ involved here, but all you really need to know is that they’ve been engineered to enhance contrast at night. Having the glasses do the heavy lifting instead of your rods and cones will reduce eye fatigue and increase your ability to make out all those important details after dusk.
The one-piece lens is fitted with arms of titanium, elastomer and soft rubber, and is firm enough to hold your head and flexible enough to fit under helmets. The Sqaudra glasses were worn by the Audi drivers who won Le Mans this year. The Squadra Night Vision Optics are available in two shapes and boast of a $450 price tag.
If you never plan to race and instead you just want to look good in lavender, TAG Heuer has also released Purple Temples. They’re available on three of TAG’s collections, ranging from $330 to $350: Zenith Rimless Curve, Zenith Rimless Curve Glamour and Squadra.
