Vanguard25 Polished Classic Tortoise Acetate
In March of 1958, the American satellite project Vanguard 1 launched into orbit. It still circles the Earth today as the oldest man-made satellite. In recognition of this achievement, our Vanguard frame celebrates the spirit of an era when mankind reached for the cosmos; it's our modern take on the classic half-frame shape.
