The Nelson continues to be a Monokel bestseller, year after year. Maybe it’s the soft rectangular lenses. Or maybe it’s the powerful versatility. Designed to complement a wide range of face shapes, the easy-to-wear style is handcrafted with unwavering dedication to premium craftsmanship.
We make our Grey colourway by mixing a tiny bit of black ink with raw biodegradable cellulose acetate. The result is a highly durable, hypoallergenic material, made from renewable resources. The crystal clear polished surface is achieved by tumbling the components of the frames in barrels filled with small pieces of wood coated with oil, paste, and other natural materials, and then hand-buffed by us and our team of technicians.
Grey lenses are known for their classic style and versatility. They’re great for reducing glare on both sunny and cloudy days, while also providing anti-fatigue benefits. Grey lenses have the added benefit of allowing true color perception - showing the color of objects in their purest form. All our lenses feature anti-scratch and anti-reflective treatment with 100% UVA/UVB protection. Made by renowned German lens- and optics manufacturer Carl Zeiss.
