In 1934, Hattori Tokei Ten, a clock manufacturer, began making photographic lenses. Before the outbreak of World War II, his company became Tokyo Kogaku Kikai (Tokyo Optical), and began using the Toko mark on binoculars during WWII. In “Militaerische Fernglaeser und Fernrohre in Heer, Luftwaffe, und Marine,” by Hans Seeger (1996), in the chapter, “Japanese Binoculars,” Kevin Kuhne wrote that Toko was one of the two largest producers of large military binoculars during WWII. Mounted on the top of a battleship, these World War II Imperial Japanese naval binoculars have been meticulously restored, the lenses and optics carefully calibrated to ensure viewing perfection. Their intricate parts, precision hardware and powerful visual range illustrate the height of optical technology. Imagine the view of the seascape, the city lights, the mountains or any other landscape from where you call home.
