The AO company began in 1826. William Beecher came to Southbridge for an apprenticeship in Providence, RI. This is where he learned the jeweler’s trade. In the years of this trade, he encountered with a pair of typically crude imported spectacles. He decided that he could do better. During WWII, AO led the industry with new optical products. They supplied the US Government with new products; gun-sights, bomb-sights, AR glass, aviation goggles, and instrument applications. The Flight Goggle 58, known as the Original Pilot Sunglasses, were also produced for the US military. It provided pilots with protection, optical performance and comfort. They were the first pair of sunglasses to be on a mission to the moon. Also featured in the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington DC.
