Shwood Redmond – Who knew the classic Wayfarer shape would lend itself so well to wood? Shwood has since flooded the market with an array of exotic woods combined with premium Carl Zeiss lenses, and this time, the Portland-based company takes on the iconic Aviator. The thin frame isn’t the best for a pure wood frame, and Shwood corrects this by employing it with lightweight titanium and a sliver of wood detailing on the ear-stems. This unique contrast gives the all-new Redmond a special personality, and gives this timeless favorite a different look.

Nico Gerard Skyview Pinnacle – In an effort to drain your bank account, Nico Gerard has created the Skyview Pinnacle Watch.
