More than a century of expertise in optical design, microscopes and cameras are the basis upon which Leica has created a new generation of Leica binoculars: the Noctivid. The Leica Noctivid glasses are compact in size, stylish, and elegant, but nevertheless unbelievably robust and resilient. Ideal for every walk of life, the new Leica NOCTIVID binoculars set new standards with their design alone. The binocular tubes can be easily grasped with one hand and, thanks to the short construction length, the weight is centered on the palm and allows for fatigue-free observing. The rubber armoring has outstanding grip, absorbs impacts, prevents slipping, and simultaneously lends the body of the binoculars a wonderfully comfortable feel. A patented, hardness class 8 surface coating provides additional protection for all exposed metal surfaces of the robust magnesium body. The real milestones however are set by the mechanical and optical design of the new Leica family of binoculars. They unite the best of the latest and most innovative technologies to create a new pinnacle of excellence. SCHOTT HTTM (High Transmission) glasses – already used in the Leica Ultravid HD-Plus optical design – ensure amazingly brilliant colours and a high transmission. Innovative baffle systems for the suppression of stray light guarantee optimum reduction of reflections and maximum contrast.
