Original and Authentic, what's the difference?

As you can see, here on Luxury Optical we offer a big range of products, all cataloged as "Registered Authentic", "Authentic Specs" and "Original Quality", here you can learn the difference to shop the ones that adjust more to your needs:


Authentic - Registered:

- Refers to a product that is genuine, true to its origin, and not a reproduction or imitation.
- They are verified through documentation, provenance, or expert authentication.
- Emphasizes uniqueness, legitimacy, and heritage.
- Often carries a premium value due to its rarity, historical significance, or cultural importance.
- Can be a valuable investment or collector's item.


Authentic Specs/Quality

- Refers to the products that meets the highest standards of quality, craftsmanship, and materials. They are not registered or verified.
- Emphasizes the product's excellence, performance, and durability.
- Focuses on the product's characteristics, features, and functionality.
- Verifies that the product meets the expected standards of quality.

In short, "authentic" ensures the product is genuine and true to its origin, while "authentic quality" ensures the product meets the highest standards of excellence and performance.

Original Quality:

- Refers to a product that meets the same high standards as the original in terms of materials, craftsmanship, and performance.
- May be a reproduction or replica, but made with the same attention to detail and quality as the original.
- Focuses on recreating the original experience, feel, and functionality.
- Emphasizes quality, excellence, and precision.
- Can be a cost-effective alternative to the original, while still offering similar benefits.

In summary, original quality focuses on recreating the excellence of the original, while authentic ensures the product is the genuine article, with a verified history and legitimacy. While original quality can offer similar benefits at a lower cost, authentic products often carry a premium value due to their uniqueness and cultural significance.
