Wild M3B Long Arm Stereomicroscope.
Wild needs to introduction as microscopes of optical and engineering quality. The brand was assimilated into the Leitz brand but for a period both brands were sold. There is no doubt that Wild was the superior brand when it came to stereomicroscopes. The M3B is a ‘click stop ' version with x6.4, x16 and x40 being the magnification options offered. This microscope is all original, although the base has been, we think, re sprayed at some stage. A fine microscope.
