Product Information

Pilot Aviator
The TVR®521 Pilot Aviator, which is a remake of the AN6531, it is now made entirely
with the Japanese Sun Platinum Metal (SPM) with mirrored lens to exude a chic touch
to the eyepiece. Handcrafted by Japanese master craftsmen, the new model features
a unique double bridge with a Bakelite Generals Bar and nose pads — a revival of the
1940s Bakelite brow bar, made famous by General Douglas MacArthur of the time.
The design stems from the original aviator sunglasses made during the World War II
era for the American army and navy crews. The first ever tear-drop style frames to be
created, aviators are made in this shape to fit the shape of the oxygen masks for flight
crews and is also able to shield the eyes from the sunlight while they in the skies, which
led to aviators becoming a category of its own in the world of eyewear.
The intricate Japanese filigree engravings on the arms also adds a suave touch to modern
day gentlemen. The new Bayonet temple design on the TVR®521 is a revolutionary
intervention added to ensure impeccable fit and desired comfort. TVR®521 carries the
importance of reviving the most original design of the iconic aviator as True Vintage
Revival continues to celebrate the history and heritage of iconic eyewear.
