Limited to 250 pieces worldwide
SKU: 799429407244 Mfg Code: 40724
With the ‘LIFE edition’ of the Leica Trinovid 8x40, Leica Camera AG presents a unique, special edition from the Leica Trinovid range of binoculars. The special edition model has been created in collaboration with the Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, who lent the binoculars their unusual look. With its neon green leather trim and color-matched engraving, the Leica Trinovid 8x40 ‘LIFE edition’ is a striking eye-catcher and a work of art in one.
In addition to the neon green leather trim, a further eye-catching feature of the binoculars of the special edition is their engravings filled out in green. Each example also features the special engraving ‘LIFE’ and a unique serial number indicating that it is one example from a limited edition (1/250). The Leica Trinovid 8x40 ‘LIFE edition’ will be supplied in green packaging in binocular style and emblazoned with the logotype ‘Life’. The scope of delivery includes a certificate of authenticity and a folding card with a personally signed quote from Olafur Eliasson. In every other respect, the technical specifications of the Leica Trinovid 8x40 ‘LIFE edition’ are identical to those of the serial production model.
The binoculars of the Trinovid-HD family were first produced in 1958. The name stands for three (“tri”) innovations (“nov”, novelty): ergonomic design, real internal focusing and highest optical performance. The developers have incorporated the core features of the binoculars icon in the new Leica Trinovid – and they have optimized the workmanship of materials and optics throughout.
