Optics: The Swarovski 8×20 Crystal Idomeneo pocket binocular has the same sophisticated inner workings as many of Swarovski’s treasured premium optics, but is compact enough to fit inside a pocket and is ideal for travel and leasure. What a luxury! To have all that sophistication inside your jacket pocket! This model boasts an ultra-precise roof prism system with a P-coating, which ensures that the viewer enjoys high-resolution, contrast-rich images from a distance. (Swarobright coating that ensures maximum fidelity across the entire light spectrum and Swarotop and Swarodur coatings that produce bright, high-contrast images.)
Field of view (FOV): Other than might be expected, the Swarovski 8×20 Crystal Idomeneo has an extremely large field of view, due to a complicated 16-lens system, so you can observe everything from natural landscapes to sporting events. The wide field of view makes tracing moving objects very easy indeed.
Close focus: The binocular even offers a 13-foot close focusing distance for nearby objects. Beautiful appearance: The striking design really distinguishes these binoculars from the rest. The Idomeneo’s lustrous housing is studded with selected Swarovski crystals that are coated with an application of sparkling gold.
Sturdiness: The binocular is also well-built and protected. Other features include a user-friendly focusing wheel; dioptric correction via the central wheel; individually twist-in eyecups that deliver a full field of view for people wearing glasses;
Weight: Weighs a mere 7.6 ounces and comes with a coordinated leather case and carrying strap.
Dimensions: 3.98 x 1.5 x 3.66 inches
