In Casino Royale, James Bond wears two pairs of Persol frames. At the start of the plot, Bond wears a Persol metal frame: Persol 2244. In the second part of the story after experiencing a number of adventures, James changes to Persol style 2720.
Style Persol 2244 features sporty chic design, constructed from a metal front joined to acetate arms by satin finish metal plates. It is characterized by a dynamic double bridge and by the exclusive Meflecto system with two cylinders. Available in a wide range color options, and in polarized versions. The shade wore by James Bond is option 834/33 which particularly sets off the personality of this model, with brown lenses and a gunmetal grey satin metal frame.
Persol, a name aptly derived from the Italian 'per il sole', meaning 'for the sun', is a brand with a rich heritage of manufacturing excellence, attention to detail and a perfect marriage of technology and design. Persol glasses owe their prestige to a number of patented features. First and foremost the MEFLECTO system, consisting of tiny cylinders (two to four) inserted by a craftsman like process into the temple arms to render them flexible, thereby assuring maximum comfort and snugness of fit. Then there is a SUPREME ARROW, which is both a functional component and the company's unmistakable signature logo. And last but not least the LENSES, always made from glass of the finest quality. To this day, Persol relies upon exclusive production processes that carry forward a long tradition of excellence, coupled with an authentically Italian vocation for stylistic and technological design innovation.
