We have just got a new delivery of the now famous ASCO loupes with four additional models to expand our range.
Let’s start with aluminium
What can I say? An absolute gem. Anodised
aluminium, azure blue body, with colour-coded rim for magnification.
Like the black H1 type, ASCO aluminium comes in seven different
magnifications. The aluminium body means an even more robust loupe for
both bench and workshop environments but the reason I really like this
loupe is for the fact that “Swiss made” and ASCO brand is prominently
visible, This is the kind of loupe you would want to take with you to
any Swiss watch brand dealership. They will be impressed.
The second bit which is equally more important and works in your favour:
the aluminium loupe is heavier than the standard plastic loupe, so you
are not expected to hold it over your eye like a watchmaker. It’s
designed to be held by hand close to your eye. Not only will you look
like a professional but you will handle it like a professional.
Price: $48 only
Very limited stock. You will find more on our shop online. ***Loupe 1806 This is a 30mm loupe, much larger than the standard watchmaker’s loupe,
again designed to be held by hand. It provides for a larger field of
vision and it’s a perfect loupe for a stamp collector, numismatics or
really any other purpose than watchmaking.
1806 comes in four different magnifications. Made in Germany.
Price: $39 Engravers' loupe
This is a massive 40mm loupe, Made in
Germany. Large 'flat'field, low distortion, two magnifications (x4 and
x5) Price: $39
***Finally, we now have in the range an amazing ASCO20 aplanatic blue tinted lens loupe
This aplanatic loupe literally turns your eye and brain into a
microscope with the focal distance of just 5mm. The loupe is held
almost next to the object and will allow you to see even the finest
detail possible with the naked eye.
A priceless instrument for inspecting surfaces like guilloche, perlage
or Geneve stripes or inclusions in diamonds and precious stones. The
loupe simply shines when used in well-lit and noise-free environments.
Remember, it is your brain that does the image processing. Aplanatic
simply means no distortion to shape or colour and the ASCO 20 aplanatic
is one of the best watchmaker’s loupes on the market.
All the loupes are now available on our online shop so feel free to check them out.
