Oberwerk provides a level of quality unheard of at their prices, and you will absolutely love the value of Oberwerk Binoculars, which are designed for both sporting and astronomy uses. Rather than focusing on the bottom line and how much money they can make from a substandard optic, Oberwerk has always focused on quality. At every stage of the design and manufacturing process Oberwerk spends the amount of time and money necessary to achieve great results. This includes an extensive testing procedure from their Ohio-based Russ Research Center. Quality assurance is a big part of Oberwerk's philosophy, so even though you're paying a great price you can count on the optic to perform at a level consistent with binoculars at a far great price. That's the value of Oberwerk.
