Unfortunately the planned 2009 launch of the Swarovski EL’s have been delayed. In a press release issued from Swarovski the Executive board have taken the decision to delay the launch of this binocular until the beginning or 2010. It would seem that it has not been possible to mass produce the quantity demanded by the market, given the requirements for the manufacturing tolerances.
Therefore in order to ensure that we do not impose long delivery delays between placing orders and receipt of the binoculars by our customers, it is necessary to allow this period of time to ensure that we have the precise production technology required for mass serial production and to accumulate enough product or delivery worldwide.
Although a set back I am sure that the decision is better to make them available in 2010 rather than have endless delays with goods being on back order. So watch this space, until then we still have very good deals on the Existing superb Swarovski EL’s
