The Oasis | Aerospace Grade Titanium Sunglasses

At William Painter, we were tired of all the compromises made in the products we use on a daily basis. While other companies are racing to the bottom, we stand for something more. 

We believe everyone deserves to have the best products, with the best materials, best manufacturers, and solid customer service that treats you like family.

We make products that can keep up with your adventures. That's why we use the most durable materials and back it up with a lifetime guarantee. 

We truly believe that having trusted everyday accessories will enhance your life and inspire you to be more.

              
              
              
              
              
              

You’re a person who needs eyewear to keep up with style. With an iconic silhouette, new age materials, and classic vintage design, The Oasis sets you apart and gets you ready for any occasion.

              

Titanium frames with the world’s lightest lenses make The Oasis the lightest sunglasses ever! While the fit ensures that the frames stay absolutely secured to your face.

These sunglasses are made from the same materials used in a Fighter jet, F1 Race Car, Lamborghini, Bugatti Veyron and many ultra-luxury watches. The Oasis is extremely strong, but also deceptively light.

Titanium is also hypoallergenic, meaning it is perfectly safe for the human body. In fact, doctors use it for hip and knee replacements for this very reason.

You’re an active person who needs eyewear that can keep up. We examined drill bits, knives, firearms and F1 race car pistons. From this, we developed our own titanium protective coating.  

 Get out there! Our durable coating has got your back.

Ever had sunglasses fall down your nose? We HATE that! Proper sunglass fitting is taken to heart. By using a thick titanium and ultralight lens, we are able to greatly improve the center of balance.

Adventure as hard as you want, these puppies aren’t flying off!

The Oasis frames come with the highest quality Japanese nylon polarized lenses. They are light, durable, clear and, most impressively, extremely scratch and shatter resistant.

We put a hammer to ours just to show you how true this is.

Polarization neutralizes glare and drastically reduces eye strain. They work especially well on car windshields, oceans or lakes, and other high glare environments.

The problem is most lenses use a polarizing and tint coating added on top of the lenses to achieve this effect. Over time, these coatings bubble and flake off the lens. Ever seen a bad tint job on a car? Same problem.

Our LifeLong Lenses integrates both polarizing and tint layers entirely inside the lens rather than just a surface film layer, so it lasts forever. No more peeling tints!

We searched around the world looking for the lightest lenses with the best optics - we got them. And for this, they cost us a premium. In fact, it costs more to produce one of our lenses than to produce an entire pair of “high-end” brand lenses.

But don’t worry, because we believe in quality products for everyone, we’ll take the hit, so you can get the best.

Our frames are made prescription ready. You can take them to your local optometrist and have your prescription put in with ease. 

Each one of our titanium arms is laser engraved with our challenge to you to “Find Your Oasis”. Let it be a subtle reminder to never settle for less than best.

It’s the details that matter, and we think this is the perfect finishing touch.

We worked really hard on making a high quality pair of sunglasses, so why not do the same for a way to protect them? Every pair of The Oasis comes with a custom-built hard case made just for it.

 Your sunglasses will fit snuggly and won’t shake around inside.

              

You are family. We truly mean it. Whether it’s a problem, concern, or therapy after Avengers: Infinity War, we’ll gladly chat with you and help you out. No machines, no jaded scripts. Only real humans and real conversations with people that care about you. 

              
              

Pick a reward, become a backer, and help us bring these new products to life. To say thank you, we offer the lowest possible price and deliver to you before anyone else.

              
              
  

Risks and challenges

We have worked extremely hard to ready this product for Kickstarter and full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment, but here are what we see as the risks:

MANUFACTURING: The manufacturer is lined up, and we have quality assurance people on site during production.

FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things get a bit crazy and stuff happens that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, customs clearance or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause a delay. We are using an experienced logistics team in Asia to get our products to the US. We have used them before, from there the product goes into our 3PL warehouse and should be on the way to you shortly after that!
