Every serious watch enthusiast is aware of the eye and neck strain involved when working on small watch components and watch movements. MB&F has teamed up with Loupe System to bring out the best magnification equipment for watch lovers and collectors. The trendy rocket shaped Project LpX has a universal clip in the case, allowing you to attach the loupes to any mobile phone or tablet, and thus use them to take macro photos or videos.
This versatile rocket ship offers dust-free storage of the highest quality magnification loupes, but does much more than that while sitting on a desk looking pretty: Project LpX is a smile-on-your-face reminder of the space-themed stories many of us read as a child, inspiring countless dreams of space travel and explorations of the unknown.
The rocket can be configured to accommodate one, two, or three Loupe System loupes, each hidden inside the rocket to be revealed at the owner’s leisure (and pleasure). The three anodized aluminium “stage” components attach to each other using a clicking bayonet system (similar to the lens mount for an SLR camera),making them easy to assemble and disassemble (or play with). Project LpX comes with two Loupe System loupes in different strengths: 3x and 6x magnification.
The anodized rocket base emits a cosmic glow in the dark.The light comes from a self-luminous tritium capsule with a half-life of 15 years.The glow requires no supplementary power sources and it is not affected by temperature, humidity, or altitude. Polished and satin-finished stainless steel, non-articulated landing structure is also attached to the base so that Project LpX can stand on its own.
Project LpX will be available for $ 3300 in 4 limited editions of 99 pieces each in black, blue, red or green.
