Description

Project LpX

This versatile rocket ship offers dust-free storage of the highest quality magnification loupes, but does much more than that while sitting on a desk looking pretty: Project LpX is a smile-on-your-face reminder of the space-themed stories many of us read as a child, inspiring countless dreams of space travel and explorations of the unknown.

And then, you turn off the lights to discover an eerie greenish glow emanating from underneath the rocket base, making the capsule appear to lift right off the desk. The smile on your face broadens as more childhood memories flood back.

Project LpX is made up of five modular parts, perfectly packaged in a sturdy travel case.

The base:
The rocket base contains a tritium capsule "booster" emitting a cosmic glow in low-light environments, making it ready for take-off in search of new life formes.

Modular body components:
The rocket can be configured to accommodate one, two, or three Loupe System loupes, each hidden inside the rocket to be revealed at the owner’s pleasure. The three anodized aluminium “stage” components attach to each other using a clicking bayonet system , making them easy to assemble and disassemble. The top rocket section doesn’t just minimise aerodynamic drag, it points toward space. The nose cone can be attached to any of the modular “stage” components using the same bayonet system. Project LpX comes with two Loupe System loupes in different strengths: x3 and x6 and an universal clip to attach the loupes to amobile phone or tablet.

The Creator

LOUPE SYSTEM

Founded in 2012, Loupe System was born from the quest for a superlative portable loupe to accurately admire the details of fine watches. The founder of Loupe System – a serious watch collector – was irritated by the simple loupes widely available in the watch industry comprising a single optical element for magnification, which provided a good view only in the centre of the viewing field. Along the edges, chromatic aberration (diffraction and/or colour shift) were the order of the day.

Loupe System’s products allow you to appreciate the finest hand-finished watches to the fullest extent conceivable – and can even be used to photograph or video a watch movement (or other item) you are inspecting. A Loupe System free-standing tablet mount, or the Universal Clip, paired with an AirPlay-enabled device, allows you to easily broadcast a live macro image to a big screen and thus explain the inner workings of a movement to a large audience.
