Developed at the same time as the telescope, binoculars have become a common tool in sailing as well as every day life. These dual marine telescopes make the perfect gift for the nautical-minded, as a small reminder of lift at sea. Much like the telescopes of the 1600s, these antique nautical instruments used quartz crystal for focusing until the mid-1800s when modern optics were implemented. In the mid-1800s, as prisms came to be used in pocket telescopes, the double prism design was implemented in binoculars. In 1894 the first of what can be considered a modern pair of binoculars was created and sold, very similar to the dual marine telescopes represented here. Throughout the next century binoculars continued to advance, from the 15 meter, 10 ton naval rangefinders of World War II, to amazingly powerful handheld versions. With a classic design, used by sea farers and nautical enthusiasts for centuries, gaze out over the horizon and see the world in a new light.
