 We use the term Big Eyes as it was applied to the U.S. Navy shipboard high powered, long range, binoculars of World War II. There is an unrelated company who has adopted          Big Eyes as their company name.
 

 

Presented  is a wonderful high powered, long range, Big Eyes binocular set that is in impeccable condition with no visible signs of wear or use. The design is that of the Chinese Military Binoculars, except we were told that this one has Russian optics. Whether or not that is true, everything works flawlessly in our simple tests. The images show sharp and bright and there are no visible imperfections in the optical system when looking backwards through the objective lens, or normally through the ocular lens. The twin turrets have two eye pieces, the smaller one is 40mm, and the larger is 25mm. Because of the high power, the sighted object must be more than 50 yards distant to be brought into sharp focus.

The binocular's barrel is covered in traditional pebble-grain black, and its 1950's era high quality wood tripod gives it the look of a military antique.  Before the Chinese entered this arena, binoculars of this design and specifications were featured in national catalogs for $3995!

The two rotating ocular turrets allow wide-angle viewing at 25x, and high-power viewing at 40x.  The apparent field of view, depending on the power selected, ranges from 52° to 62° which is very wide. It is a Giant having a viewing element over two feet in length and it weighs a hefty 26 1/2 lbs!  For decades, only Carl Zeiss designed binoculars of this type were y available to the East German and Chinese militaries or in the after-market at much higher prices.  When you see the quality of construction, and the quality of the optics, you'll understand why, in the past, it could sell for such a high price. Comes complete with a sturdy wood tripod, metal tabletop tripod, and lightweight nylon form-fitted case. 

This is the ultimate optical instrument for terrestrial observation. If you've got a home with a view, enjoy it to the utmost with this magnificent instrument.
