Randolph Engineering, now owned and operated by the third generation of its founders’ families, has been providing service eyewear to military specifications since the late 1970s, becoming the U.S. military’s prime contractor in 1982. These are battle-tested sunglasses.

The Submariner style was originally designed for the US Navy as a prescription frame aboard submarines, and they are still standard-issue for today’s crews. When you’re maneuvering up and down ladders in cramped quarters, you don’t want your glasses sliding around, and this classic pair will stay firmly on deck through seas of perspiration.

It’s a retro look with a functional heritage: sleek, clean, and cool, with every part precision-made in a mostly by-hand, rigorously quality-controlled process comprising over 200 steps.

Quality and durability are the watchwords at Randolph Engineering, and that’s why they’ve been a supplier of choice to United States armed forces since the 1970s. 

Use & Care

These shades will fit under most helmets and motorcycle goggles, so you can go straight from your underwater fortress to your road machine, in the manner of a James Bond villain. The cushioned silicone nose pads provide a comfortable, adjustable fit, even under heavy perspiration, while the precision-ground lenses are chemically tempered for impact resistance to survive a tumble. Soldered joints, forged with Randolph’s own proprietary flux blend, come with a lifetime warranty under normal use. You’ll never have to squint on another submarine deck.

Production & Design

Made in the USA, this signature style combines function and fashion for an appealingly retro vibewith a history of several decades of precision craftsmanship to back it up.

The 23-karat gold-plated frame looks sharp in the sunshine, and sophisticated in the shade.
