Loupe recommendation

Hi guys, I am looking at buying a lighthouse loupe and I was wondering what you use to look at your watches I.e strength 10x, 20x and features led, uv ? Any help would be appreciated and if you could PM the lighthouse website I would appreciate it as I have been unable to find it. Thanks Hamish

Hamish, Here is a link to their site. Apparently they suffered some damage with hurricane Sandy.http://www.lighthouse.us/epages/lighthouse.sf/ You might want to look at the loupe from Visible Dust. They make cleanig brushes etc for camera sensors. They also have a great illuminated loupe. It has a large vieing window and LED's. Here's their link. They're a bit pricey though.http://visibledust.com/products3.php?pid=602 Good luck, Joseph

The VC gift from SIHH 2011 is 2.5x and works quite nicely for casual examination in most situations.  Still, ones with a built-in light would be handy too.
Nice shot, Dean

Although after that glass, I would be loopy.  crying Robert
Hamish, you might try one of these...

I use it more than any other loupe I own. And although traditionalists may frown, its 3-D ability is very useful. Best, Joseph
Joseph, now I want to know...

...what is in the VC box on which sits those amazing 3d loupe goggles. And, I think we need a picture of you in the goggles.  Please ask Gale to take a picture for us.  Thank you.  wink Robert
Robert, that box

houses the winder and the watch, my Malte Chrono Perpetual. As for the photo...I thought about that. It looks too silly! blush Best, Joseph
Is that you Joseph?
