No, you’re not looking at Rick Ross’ latest business venture. This official Maybach product is in a class all of its own.

Daimler AG German manufacturer of brands like the Mercedes Benz & Maybach teamed up with german eyewear specialist IVKO to extend the Maybach brand business into a range of exclusive eyewear products reflective of the brand and its customers.

Just like the Maybach vehicles, the exclusive Maybach eyewear collection are hand crafted in Germany with luxury materials like lacquered wood, leather, natural horn, carbon fiber, platinum, carbon fiber, titanium as well as 18-karat white, yellow and rose gold. These handcrafted glasses also have other personable details modeled after the maybach cars like the arms of the frames embellished with the Maybach logo.

The Maybach brand pays homage to Wilhelm Maybach, one of Germany’s first automotive engineers who passed away in 1929 at the age of 83. He designed the first car that bore a Mercedes badge in 1901; Wilhelm Maybach built the car that heralded the modern era. His Opus No.1 went down in history as the first Mercedes, and he is still remembered as the “king of design engineers”.

The Maybach legend lives’ on as a symbol for the ultimate in luxury and technology based on its aesthetic appeal, perfection and elegance – these are the high demands, which the Maybach brand up holds in the world of luxury.

With addition to the initial line, the brand is also gearing up for the release of their first Limited Gold Edition frames. The new models are handcrafted from solid 18K gold, made on order,
and feature an engraved serial number with a strict production maximum of 50 pieces only per variation for sunglasses and 100 pieces only per variation for optical frames.
