    in advance off going for new prescription glasses in 2017 I checked the TH official website several times in 2016.
    By the end it couldn't be found anymore.
    Tried to get some information from the customer services. No luck.
    Has Tag Heuer left the eyeglasses market quietly?

    Regards

    I have some of them and noticed they were removed from the US page a while back. The Rx glasses were made in France, and from what I recall when I looked into this a few months ago, they were still available in Europe, but no longer available in the US. However, in recent months, these may have been discontinued everywhere, as it appears even European dealers are no longer carrying them; only remaining inventory.

    So if you find a re-seller that has the model you want, you should take advantage now.

    Interesting. I recommend going with the Oakley Rx range.

    I am looking for the rimless TH frames. Not sunglasses.
    Still weird not a word can be found on the internet about the continuity of the make..

    I've seen TH glasses at opticians locally, never in TH boutiques or resellers.

    Yes, same here for the prescription models. Although the TAG Heuer boutiques did carry the sunglasses.

    Indeed found 3 pieces at our local optician. But he told me the France company got bankrupt after TH did not continue the licence. So only choise fron in stock models and probably future repair problems.
    So, ens of TH eyeglasses.. shame..
