All DITA-EPILUXURY eyepieces feature interchangeable temples and include a set of additional cable temples.
All of our optical frames include sun clips.
DITA-EPILUXURY flagship eyepieces feature interchangeable lens units, temples and in the case of EPLX.5, bridge components.
The DITA-EPILUXURY flagship frames EPLX.5 and EPLX.9 enable the user to change lenses through a simple yet ingenius lens release system.
The lens release mechanism in EPLX.5 and EPLX.9 are optimized for each frame. The EPLX.5 lens unit is encased in titanium clipping into the frame and minimizing the direct handling of the lens itself. The EPLX.5 Lens unit is further secured by the detachable bridge component which clips over the lens unit and onto the frame. The EPLX.9 lens release uses a hollowed out titanium brow bar with a powerful magnet embedded within. The titanium encased lens unit clips up into the brow bar and is held taught by the magnet.

Just as considered as lens technology, the EPI-SYSTEM frames also exhibit a fully integrated design and engineering approach. The temple quick-change system enables the user to change temples easily. This system is built as a tool free release that utilizes a press-button release functionality. The DITA-EPILUXURY temple is one of the most difficult design concepts that DITA has ever attempted.
DITA-EPILUXURY offers 3 different temples, with every eyepiece including 2 of the 3 temple designs.

OPTICAL GLASS CRAFTSMANSHIP :
PROCESSED WITH DIAMONDS
Out of all different kinds of glass, ‘optical glass’, must be put through particular physic-chemical treatment to refined the material. It is necessary to use a specialized of oven where the glass is refined. The first chamber uses only electricity to heat, while a second chamber is used to create a uniform glass flow. The glass is then taken to a temperature of 1400 °c, where the glass purifies itself.
In the last step, a pure platinum tube is put in contact with the melt, this causes a chemical reaction and purifies it. After this chemical reaction the glass is pure and only then can be defined as ‘optical’.
COMBINING NATURAL AND MANMADE MATERIALS
The apparent simplicity of these materials conceals a vast amount of experimentation, work and creativity; in which blends of natural and synthetic play a key role. Strength and lightness are obtained by combining disparate elements seeking to unite horn-titanium or wood-titanium in a single eyewear frame. Synthetics are now transformed by the addition of exquisite materials and specialized varnishing treatments.

Some of the designers and craftsman involved in producing DITA-EPILUXURY have decades of experience mastering the craft. Beyond our own experience, studying the past is essential and fundamental to our design ethos. Through this study, a cyclical relationship informing the future is created. From what was historically possible, to know what is presently surpassible.
