Leica Offers Limited Lifetime Warranty on Spotting Scopes and Binoculars

Leica Sport Optics announces a new improved warranty program for Leica binoculars and spotting scopes. Effective immediately, Leica will offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty for defects in materials or workmanship for all LEICA Ultravid HD, Ultravid BL, Duovid, Trinovid compact, Ultravid Compact binoculars, and the new Televid Spotting Scopes. In addition, owners of these products who register will be eligible for a 3-year “Passport Protection” policy (registration is mandatory for Passport coverage). “Passport Protection” covers functional failures, or any accidental damage to the covered equipment, including breakage, water damage or any accident (but not fire, theft, or loss.) Leica’s representatives claim that the new Leica Limited Lifetime Warranty Program, combined with 3-year Passport Protection, is the strongest warranty from any European manufacturer.

Enhanced Warranty Retroactive to 11/1/2007
It’s nice to know that the warranty provisions will extend backwards in time. This new warranty program is retroactive to all applicable products sold to dealers or purchased by consumers since November 1, 2007. Consumers will continue to be required to register product purchases to gain the advantage of the 3-Year Passport Protection Plan.

Laser RangeFinders and Geovids NOT Included
Warranties on the Leica Geovid products will remain a Limited 5 Year warranty for defects in materials and workmanship and CRF laser rangefinder will continue to have a Limited 2 Year Warranty.
