Leica 8×20 Monovid Monocular

The Leica 8×20 Monovid is a true high end monocular. Its elegant design is as impressive as its superior technology. It is ideal for birdwatchers and hikers who need to travel light. It features a close up lens that allows detailed observation of objects at distances as close as 25-30cm. Simply screwing this accessory onto the front lens lets users experience a macro effect that reveals even the finest details.

It is also particularly practical: when not in use, the lens can be safely stored in the leather case provided. Another ingenious feature of the elegant case is its silent magnetic fasteners, which ensures that nothing is surprised or scared away.

The aluminum body is nitrogen filled to prevent misting, and its lenses are coated with water and dirt repellent AquaDuraTM coating. Furthermore, in contrast to all other monoculars, it is not only splash proof but fully waterproof to a depth of 5m (16.5 ft). So come rain or shine Leica Monovid owners can be certain they will have the perfect view.
