Hi Everyone:

Apologize for posting a couple of days before discovering this board.

I started reading here in 2015 after my Victorinox Explorer from 1999 was confiscated in Paris and I was less than happy with that odd transparent magnifying glass in a new one :(
Since then I've learnt a lot reading you and also SAKWiki.

Greetings from Spain

With an Explorer in my pocket everyday since 1999

Greetings pitquim, and welcome  :salute:

The transparent plastic has taken over as it is now also used for the LED module on the 'Lite' models.

Victorinox has fixed the problem of the lens popping out the clear frame, and they are no longer using the plastic lens, but there are many forum members (myself included) that prefer the old grey model. Supporters of the new lens say they prefer the wider field of view and longer depth of field from the larger lens and lower magnification. But I tend to hold the lens up to my eye for use, so prefer the higher magnification, and there are other reasons I prefer the old Explorer, such as the longer Phillips and wider large blade tang.  :tu:
