MILAN — Omega and Marcolin have joined to launch the first eyewear collection under the luxury watchmaker’s brand. Codesigned by the two companies, the range will include sunglasses showing a style inspired by Omega’s timepieces.

The collection will be available at Omega boutiques around the world starting from August.

“This is an exciting step for Omega because it leads our brand into new areas of creativity,” said Omega president and chief executive officer Raynald Aeschlimann.
