The Aneas case supplied as a part of each example of the ‘Edition Safari’ 2017 is handmade from finest-quality canvas with features in light brown leather and an additional leather carrying strap. The French artisan workshop, Aneas, is renowned for its use of only the finest leathers and the elaborate finishing of its products.
‘The new Leica Ultravid HD-PLUS ‘Edition Safari’ 2017 unites exceptional quality, finest materials and exclusive leather, the excellence of HD-PLUS optics and the lightweight aluminum construction of the Ultravid models. The combination of perfect technology and finest materials makes the ‘Edition Safari’ an exclusive and simultaneously practical companion’, says Nanette Roland, Product Manager Leica Sport Optics (Wetzlar).
