Your buffalo horn is icberlin one? Looks the the buffalo horn temple. Because I don't rmb Lindberg having buffalo horn Temples. And you diy bend the frame itself?! That's pretty courageous...
no la mine is titanium one. Icberlin uses stainless steel and hinge not so gd. S clip better. The baffalo temples quite thin so i bent them at such huge angle also think might break off but surprising quite elastic. I think maybe because thin and uses premium selected baffalo. If uses heat i think might have permanent crease lines like plastic.

No i didnt have my spec adjusted thats why i wonder why its imbalanced.

If never adjust, few possibilities is that when the lens is fitted on the frame, it could cause the shape to be bent slightly. Depending of the index of the lenses and the size/curve of the frame, might affect slightly.
Or just maybe it isn't adjusted that's why it's this way. Never try asking your optician/optom to adjust it for you? Seems like you are still comfortable with it?

Very nice for collection purpose. The New Lindberg collection cases also not bad😉 Arriving soon..
Newest horn series is the wooden/buffalo series.
Personally I feel the rim series of Lindberg looks really good and the ability to customise the Colours to your liking is pretty neat.

Hmmm after buying it i didnt really wear because too loose and the shop staff ever told me horn cant adjust much so i kept inside drawer till recently took it out again and try adjusting myself. Because i think even opticians are afraid of bending horn temples. Kind of buyer remorse but i will still try to give it a few more shots and see how it goes. After i bend inwards myself the fit slightly better and lens quite heavy even though i used 1.67 nulex EP lens.

Yeah i think yur explanation most logical. Most likely due to lens fitting in which case there isnt much i can do abt it right??

I remember in the past tagheuer has leather temples? Wonder how leather feels and maintenance wise and quality. Nowadays only seeing horns or carbon fibre which is also headache due to rigid cant adjust much.

Hi, is there any reason why the right eye is 6/24? Any ocular conditions and any extra test done e.g pinhole, amsler chart(dot at the center of a grid), Retinal scan/fundus photography?

Leather is quite delicate imo. Sweat will cause it to smell bad, if an impact is landed on the leather, there might be permanent marks. Once the leather has been stretched, very difficult to put back... there's good/bad points but as of now, I just feel the cons outweigh the pros more.

Need to adjust the temple tips, nose pads and frame front(slightly since it's horn). How does it fit on you? Are the temple tips in skin contact with your head? And the nosepad sitting? Will show you an example of a good fit later.

Mine doesn't slide at all.. adjustment very impt.

Oh i see.. Sounds like master in adjustment. My face very odd shape combined with oily and fat broad skull quite hard not to slide.

Initially temple tips not in contact with mastoid area so i bent till touch. Nosepads sitting high on nose.

Lindberg so good huh maybe next time can consider. I saw the horn rim quite nice but round shape may not suit me. Went to a few shops all say they dont take horn ones.

I think sg really no market no demand for upmarket specs. Only got demand for luxury watches or cars.
