Specifications

The Tanganyika wood comes from the Equatorial belt of rainforests across Africa. The color of stained woods is obtained with natural and hypoallergenic dyes.

Titanium is hypoallergenic, biocompatible, nickel free, ultra light, very resistant, anti-corrosive material.

Japanese in origin.

Cellulose acetate is made with cotton fiber imported from Japan. We use it for our end-tips so as to be adapted on the basis of each morphology. The exclusive brushed matt finishing of acetate reminds the woods veneer.

In 1995 Maurice Léonard, founder and muse, created Gold & Wood and set up his handcrafted factory in a small magical city called Hosingen, located in Luxembourg.

At the heart of the workshop, a true laboratory of creation and innovation, safe and precise gestures made exclusively by hand, perpetuate a know-how that our Master Craftsmen have passed on for decades. Wood species are carefully selected according to their nobility, their rarity and the emotion they inspire. The different wood veneers are then shaped and delicately plated on thin aluminum strips.

From the sketch to the frame, dozens of technical steps will follow each other to give life to each eyepiece.Time is a key ingredient in the equation of the manufacture, a creation that can mobilize our craftsmen for more than 6 months.
