»To be closer to the stars« were the words of Wilhelm Swarovski, son of the founder. His passion and dedication helped him build his own 6x30 binocular in 1935, with access to the best technologies used to manufacture jewelry stones. After he founded Swarovski Optik, he made the first serial product Habicht 7x42 in 1949 that continues to be produced in the best tradition. After the first riflescope in 1959, spotting scope in 1967 and first armored binocular in 1971 were made, Swarovski already builds its way up on the market and sealed the deal with 1976's riflescope with shock absorber. In 1994 the Swarovski company introduced the first telescope and in 1999 EL binoculars, setting another milestone. Swarovski Z6 launched in 2007 was the first riflescope with 6x zoom.
