Autodromo is a boutique company producing some of the best looking motoring gear in the world, they started out with watches and have since branched out into driving gloves, driving sunglasses and classically styled watch straps.
This series of driving sunglasses are named after the Stelio Pass – a renowned road in Europe made up of 60 hairpin turns, it winds its way up the alpine mountainside of Southern Tyrol and many consider it an essential drive for any motoring gentleman of means.
The Stelvio Sunglasses are made by hand in Japan from high-quality acetate, each pair is made with over 130 single operations and the multi-stage tumbling/polishing process alone takes 2 weeks. Each pair uses polarised UV lenses and comes with a leather case (pictured below) and a lens cleaning cloth.
