This "Big Eye" style was specifically used on late-war battleships, destroyers, cruisers and other surface vessels! Made of brass with a DARK ORANGE lens (it looks RED in the photo, but it is in-fact ORANGE), these filters were common for most Japanese Navy binoculars and optics. It allowed the user to darken (or lighten) the view, depending on the situations. Retaining 95% original paint and finish, there is NO damage or corrosion!
Would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
