CARTIER CT0485O 003 | H14J17BS

Cartier Buffs, or simply "Buffs," represent the epitome of luxury eyewear, designed by the renowned jewellery house, Cartier. Revered for their exceptional quality and distinct style, these glasses have gained significant popularity, especially in Detroit, where the term "Buffs" originated. Known also as Carties, Cardis, 'Ye's, or Sticks, Cartier Buffs are a symbol of elegance and sophistication.

The "White Buffs" feature exquisite white horn legs, a rare and highly sought-after characteristic

Crafted from natural buffalo horn sourced from South America and Asia, each pair of Buffs showcases unique patterns, ensuring that no two pairs are alike.

Horn is a natural material which offers a variety of tones to give each frame a special character. The Horn is layered to increase stability and resistance. The unvarnished horn can be polished over time, enhancing its shine and character.

Cartier Buffs cater to those seeking contemporary yet striking eyewear as they are often embellished with metals such as 18-carat gold, diamonds and onyx. Each frame, handcrafted in France, Italy, and Japan, reflects Cartier’s unparalleled craftsmanship and commitment to using noble materials.

Discover the world of Cartier Buffs, where every pair tells a unique story of luxury and refinement.

REDUCING REFLECTIONS

Whether we are at home, at work or shopping, we are exposed to multiple sources of light. Coming from all angles, light reaches your lenses and creates reflections. These reflections can be a source of discomfort and impact your everyday life by making us adopt new behaviours, consciously and subconsciously. We adjust our heads, changing our posture or even remove our spectacle lenses just reduce the visual impacts of reflections. Crizal Sapphire HR reduces reflections regardless of where the light comes from. By reducing the amount of reflections your vision will be purer with more vivid images and improved lens aesthetics when others look at you. Transparency has never been so visible.(4)

 

HIGHEST LEVEL OF UV PROTECTION FOR A CLEAR LENS

It has been found that UV can have a cumulative effect on your eyes contributing to premature eye ageing and is associated as a risk factor of cataracts.(5) Crizal Sapphire HR filters UV rays preventing them from passing through the front of your lens and preventing them from reflecting off of the back of your lens into your eye. Thanks to this unique UV protection enhancement Crizal Sapphire HR has an E-SPF rating of 35, the highest E-SPF index on clear lenses for optimal UV protection.(6)

 

ENHANCE YOUR LENSES IN EVERY WAY

Crizal Sapphire HR ensures your spectacle lenses are resistant and repellent from scratches, smudges, water droplets and dust particles. Meaning - your lenses are incredibly protected, clear and easy to clean. Which comes in handy when facing everyday activities.
