All hands on deck! Captain! Hey Sailor! Is that a telescope in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Think of all the great conversations that owning a spyglass will start. Not to mention they are fully functional when you go out birding, or need to survey the distance. Conjure up the smell of salt spray every time you take these out and let the wind fill the sails of your imagination.
There's something about antique navigational instruments that is really inspiring. Especially if you love to travel and also love the elegance of old fashioned technology. So does a spyglass mean you get to spy?
