{Summary}

Loupe, 10X magnification, 20mm diameter lens, triplet. Best quality of all the large-lens triplet loupes (...apart from the large Zeiss loupe).
Engraved with a conversion chart for the weights of gold and diamonds. This is our own brand, we have them made for us in China, it is by far the best 10X large lens (apart from the Zeiss), despite its relatively low price.

{Applications / Quality}
Generally, loupes are used by jewellers and antiques traders for looking at very small marks; by horologists and engineers for inspecting very small parts; by stamp and coin dealers; as a basic field instrument for biologists and geologists.

Specifically, this loupe is the best quality of all (apart from Zeiss), helped by the small size. This is my recommendation for a top quality medium-priced loupe (aside from Zeiss and Eschenbach).

This is one of our six best loupes, see detailed review.
