BMT, in fact, allows ultra-sharp cutting for all patterns with strong metallic touch, making the realization of any imaginable pattern possible. The BMT can perfectly match with the HDA™ pattern, the main elements of the graphic are clearly defined because of the elegant color-blocking. This extraordinary technology allows the transformation of textures and colors into crisp high definition images, giving eyewear designers an entirely new level of creativity.
