Focus on Rimless

In its own way it’s bold… But it’s the essence of subtle. It’s lightweight metals and vibrant plastics. And nothing makes the shape of the lens shine stronger than a rimless setting. So be prepared for the surprise of the unexpected.
It’s all sharp… Because the focus is rimless.
And it’s limitless..
