This particular optical instrument stands as a testament to Luxxoptica's dedication to preserving the intricate details and functionality of historical artifacts.


The restoration process undertaken by the skilled craftsmen at Luxxoptica is nothing short of meticulous.

Furthermore, the optics of this instrument, crucial to its functionality, have been fully restored to the original specifications. This painstaking attention to detail ensures that the instrument operates as effectively today as it did during the tumultuous times of World War II. This Ross optical instrument, originally mounted to an anti-aircraft gun, played a vital role in the defense of London during the air raids.
