Winston Churchill favoured the Dixey range…
as  he famously once said:
“I am easily satisfied with the very best”.

CW Dixey create spectacles and sunglasses that are traditional and sophisticated. Established in 1777, C.W. Dixey & Son is the oldest independent eyewear company in the world and they were the first to incorporate diamonds and platinum into their eyewear, blurring the distinction between eyewear and jewellery.Since the company began, ownership has passed between friends or family and to this day they remain an English family business, based in London.

“Our pedigree is unrivalled. We have served seven successive kings and queens of England, the Royal Houses of nine nations, and the emperors of China, France and India. Sir Winston Churchill remained a loyal patron for half a century and our reputation also attracted legendary adventurers, writers and artists.”

“Our ethos has always been quality and exclusivity, and it remains so today. Our eyewear is designed in Great Britain and made in France. Use of fine materials, limited production, and artisan craftsmanship, ensures our eyewear follows in the purest C.W. Dixey & Son tradition.”
The lack of obvious branding and the concentration on design speaks for itself.

Why we love it… The fine acetate frames in this range offer a different option to heavy, bold styles. Sophisticated, sublime and stunning.   We love the history and the story behind this brand and the company.
