Eye glass magnifier for watchmakers and jewellers

Lightweight plastic-mounted watchmaker eyeglasses with choice of lenses for various hands-free inspection and repair tasks. Comfortable for use over long periods. These loupes are very popular for close examination of watches, jewels and electronic components, even by bird fanciers who use them to evaluate pigeon eye sign and apply medication.

Magnification strengths and focal distances

Refer to the focal length to see which one best suits your needs. Focal length reduces as magnification increases. Check measurements in table below. Please select the lower magnification if you need some distance (e.g. for tools) between the magnifier and the object, or go for the higher strengths when you need to view subjects barely visible to the naked eye. Magnification strengths include popular 10x lens, within a range from 4x up to 20x.

How to use an eyeglass magnifier

Eye loupes have a larger lower section, designed to fit snugly into the eye socket, like a monocle. There's a bit of a knack but once you've got it, you'll be able to see intricate objects like watch batteries, mobile phone SIM cards, jewellery hallmarks, electronic circuitry and old coins much more clearly. If you've never seen anyone using an eyeglass magnifier, take a ring or gem to your local jewellery shop, and the chances are that one of the staff will take one out to inspect it.
