BRITISH BATLLESHIP BINOCULARS 10 x 80
SKU: 36



BRITISH BATLLESHIP BINOCULARS 10 x 80 

A powerful 10 x 80 with a distinctive design, and four in-built filters.  
Exclusively made for the British Navy, and often used on torpedo boat destroyers.  
Signed and dated Ross London 1942, model AC 2005, pattern 12114.

The binoculars are equipped with swinging weather shields.  
These were used to protect the lenses from sea water, but also to be able to clean
the lenses more thoroughly.  Special feature : clicker gear on both eye pieces.
Clicker gear: while turning both eye pieces for adjusting, a number of clicks can be heard.
By memorizing the amount of clicks that are necessary for your personal adjustment, it was
possible to focus quickly and perfectly during the day, or at night when it was dark, without first
having to look through the binoculars.  
The optical quality of these binoculars is excellent: perfectly clear reproduction and a crystal clear image.  
A characteristic of these binoculars is the overwhelming amount of light and clarity that you are
confronted with, and the beautifully wide horizon.  
Built-up on a restored oak wood stand from the forties.  
The binoculars come with the original chest. 
Exceptionally good condition without traces of wear.

General information on the built-in filters:  
Blue and green colored filters can provide eye protection against laser and radiation.  
Neutral shades of grey can be used in good weather and clear weather conditions.  
Light orange or yellow can heighten the contrast in sparse light and fog.
