These limited edition Leica binoculars were inspired by luxury cars and made in collaboration with Italian automotive company 'Zagato.' With Leica's fame coming from its quality craftsmanship and lenses, it was an obvious choice for the brand to widen its product range from cameras to binoculars as well.

These luxurious Leica binoculars, referred to as Ultravid 8x32 'Edition Zagato,' are made from silver aluminum with boast two red anodized rings circling the lenses. With only 1,000 of them made, these binoculars are a special item for collectors.

While it may be surprising to some that an item as seemingly outdated as binoculars is highly coveted and sought after, it helps to remember that fans of Leica cameras will often wait three months before getting their hands on a Leica product.
