New PO 714 differ from the original version for a series of small but important details:
- the return of the blue lens – the favourite of Steve McQueen™;
- folding closure at the back end of the temple arm – no longer top to bottom, but now from outside to inside;
- the Supreme Arrow, Persol’s distinctive mark, is the functional element enclosing the hinges. Here, it is mounted both on the temple arm and front of the frame - as in the classic model - as well as on the folding hinge and middle of the temple arm, with a total of four arrows. This design choice clearly accentuates the identity of a model that is already iconic;
- the Steve McQueen™ signature emblazons the inside of the temple arm as well as the elegant leather case.
