Forget watchmaking, you could write the "A Tale of Two Cities" on a piece of tortellini with this triple magnifier visor. Magnifies from 1.8X to 4.8X. Has a permanent 2.2X lens, a flip-down lens, and a flip-down loupe. Separate white LEDs at each temple, powered by (2) "AAA"s each which aren't included. The whole thing is in a black plastic visor, 7-3/4" wide x 5-1/4" deep with a flexible plastic strap held by a hook-and-loop closure. Opens to 9" max dia and has coated acrylic lenses. Now then: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times….
Flat plastic Fresnel lens. This flexible magnifier is 7-1/4" x 10-1/4" and only about a millimeter thick. It is great when you need to scan a list or to look for something in a directory. You can see most of the page without moving the magnifier. Only about 1.5 power, but that can make a huge visual difference. The quality is not high, but neither is the price.
This acrylic loupe has a 1" dia lens attached to a 2" dia base which is, of course, clear so it doesn't block out light. Stands 1-7/8" tall and magnifies a solid 5X. Pay no attention to what it says on the box, which is true of so many things, don't you think?
A good size for keeping on the coffee table or desk, and with a felt-covered bottom so it won't scratch the furniture, this folding loupe measures 2-1/2" dia in a bright-brass-plated case that's 2-7/8" dia x 11/16" thick when closed. Magnifies to approx 4X. You're gonna love it!

This glass-lens 2X magnifier is a full 4" wide x 2" (wider than a column of newsprint) with a padded easy-to-grip 4" long handle at the bottom right corner, angled to the right. Slide the orange tab up and a pair of bright white LEDs illuminate the subject. You add (3) "AAA" batteries. The glass lens means it's much harder to scratch than plastic, so you can actually clean it with regular tissue or a handkerchief.
