During WWII, more than 500,000 Swiss men were mobilized within days of Germany’s invasion of Poland in 1939. Even today, no other country provides as many of its citizens with a rifle and military kit. These Swiss Army binoculars have been part of that kit since before WWII. Produced for years by storied Swiss maker Kern, features include a long-proven porro prism design, individually focusing eyepieces with unusual pull-out brass eyecups, leather neck strap and trim, and a variety of markings both top and bottom. In 1988 Kern was taken over by the Leica label.
