In 1948, the Nikon Model I, which was created using the most advanced optical technologies of the time and represented the starting point for Nikon cameras, was released.
To commemorate Nikon’s first camera and its 100th anniversary, Swarovski® has partnered with Nikon to create a beautiful, almost full-scale, crystal reproduction of the Nikon Model I. Precise attention to detail has been paid to this precious crystal replica. The corporate logo from 1948 can be found on the top of the reproduction, and even the applicable text has been engraved around the lens portion.
