Used Leica Ultravid 8x32 HD-PLUS, Edition Hermes - 035/111
In January of 2016, celebrating 111-years of excellence in Sport Optics, Leica collaborated with Hermés to produce the very exclusive Ultravid HD-PLUS ‘Edition Hermés' binoculars. The Ultravid 8 x 32 HD-PLUS ‘Edition Hermés' and the Ultravid 10 x 32 HD-PLUS ‘Edition Hermés’ are luxurious black anodized binoculars wrapped in a supple Hermés calfskin leather, paired with a handcrafted canvas and leather Hermés bag with matching strap. The lovely Hermés leather styling is completed by the included matching calfskin wrist strap.
These high-performing binoculars combined the latest Leica HD-PLUS optics with vintage style eyecups, giving the user the most natural color rendition and high spectrum of contrast mixed with traditional style and handling.
A total of 111 sets were made available worldwide - 56 units of the Ultravid 8 x 32 HD-PLUS ‘Edition Hermés' bearing serial numbers 001 through 056, and 55 units of the Ultravid 10 x 32 HD-PLUS ‘Edition Hermés' bearing serial numbers 057 through 111. Each set included a signed certificate and had matching serial numbers on the bag and binoculars.
One of the highlights of these black anodized binoculars is their Hermès swift calfskin leather casing in the illustrious ‘Rouge H’. This extremely fine and supple leather is used not only on the body of the binoculars, but also for the shoulder strap included in the set. Each pair also comes with an exclusive handcrafted swift calfskin leather and canvas Hermès bag. In the past, the two companies have collaborated to develop special editions of the Leica M-System: the Leica MP “Edition Hermès” (2003), the Leica M7 “Edition Hermès” (2009) and the Leica M9-P “Edition Hermès” (2012).
This particular set is number 035 of 111 produced, and is in mint condition with the original box, packaging, paperwork and all originally included accessories.
