PROVEN
QUALITY
SINCE 1989
We have a longing to live in harmony with nature. Observing birds and other
animals very nearly satisfies this basic need. After all, mankind has always made
use of the knowledge and experience gained from observing nature and passed it
down from one generation to the next. This is also true at SWA ROVSKI OPTIK
and the SLC family is the best example of this. Since 1989 wildlife observers have
been relying on these sturdy binoculars, which offer outstanding optical quality
and are constantly being improved.
In our hectic everyday lives, it is appealing to have the chance to finally find time all to ourselves
while observing nature. This is especially true when out early in the morning or in the evening. At these
times, you can watch the new day dawn or slowly draw to a close and you can enjoy the entire beauty
of your surroundings.
For many wildlife observers, part of this tradition includes having a pair
of SLC binoculars with them.
And with good reason, because they can rely on the proven, strong SWAROVSKI OPTIK qualities that
their SLC binoculars combine: they are rugged for everyday use and can be used in even the most adverse
weather conditions. Just take their outstanding optical performance that, in the case of the SLC 56 for
instance, really delivers particularly at twilight and in difficult light conditions. They simply know that
they’ve made the right decision in opting for a pair of SLC binoculars.

TRADITION
“You have to imagine product development at
SWAROVSKI OPTIK as being – figuratively
speaking – like interlocking cogs. One leads on
to the other. At the end of the process you have
a product whose optical attributes, ergonomic
design, and materials are in perfect harmony.”
GERD SCHREITER, EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBER
FOR TECHNICAL OPERATIONS
How can we make our products – like the popular SLC models – even better?
This is precisely the question that staff in our many departments rack their
brains over. What do we need to change to make them even easier to use?
Which materials are rugged and feel comfortable? How do we get as close as
possible to achieving perfect optics? The way in which these and similar issues
are tackled is what distinguishes SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s products from many
others. Ultimately, it’s not about improving individual aspects, but about always
enhancing the whole product. After all, anyone who opts for a quality product
from SWAROVSKI OPTIK should simply expect the best.

REVEALED
1 PERFECTION
IN OPTICAL PERFORMANCE
It all starts with the optics. This lies at the core of every SWA ROVSK I OPTIK product.
This basic principle has remained at the forefront since the SLC range was presented in 1989.
Working closely with users and in keeping with state-of-the-art technology, we have continually
made enhancements to this range.
HIGH DEFINITION Lots of products are labeled as “HD,” but
what does this mean in terms of optical performance? In the
case of SLC binoculars, it means highly innovative optical
design, combined with fluoride-containing lenses that minimize
interference from color fringing. This enables maximum color
fidelity and leads to a significant improvement in resolution
and contrast. SWAROVSKI OPTIK can therefore achieve a new,
pioneering HD standard that is second to none.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? The HD optical system in
SLC binoculars produces an extremely high-contrast image
with natural colors and razor-sharp outlines. These binoculars
enable you to make out crucial details even better.

LARGE FIELD OF VIEW The biggest challenge facing us is how
to combine the biggest possible field of view with absolute
edge-to-edge image sharpness. If we succeed at this, it will be
viewed as a perfect optical achievement that those who wear
glasses can fully benefit from too, thanks to individually
adjustable twist-in eyecups.
MAXIMUM FIELD OF VIEW
also for those who
wear glasses
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? A large field of view is the absolute
key to success in a quickly changing viewing situation, as it
allows you to identify important details even better at the edge of
the field of view, and also to see better in poor light conditions.

There are specific binoculars for every kind of

night, for instance in search of owls, poses
particular challenges for both people and

with optimum support whatever the situation.

LET THERE BE
LIGHT
Poor light conditions call for the skills of an expert. The SLC 10x56 binoculars have been developed
to complement the proven SLC 8x56 binoculars, with both of them making their mark mainly during
observation at twilight and night, with the latter also offering a large field of view. Not to mention that
wildlife observers traveling around very faraway landscapes such as plains or deserts and observing
very remote animals or birds can see and identify more. This is thanks to the high magnification of the
SLC 15x56 binoculars. The rugged and outstanding ergonomic design adds the finishing touch to the
best total package for observation at twilight and over long distances. The extended depressions for
improved grip is one example of the ergonomic design.
“When watching owls at night or in
very dark forests, you feel as if you
always have your very own light
source with the SLC 56 binoculars.”
