Re: Authorized Kahles USA Dealer
Here is a copy of the Kahles Warranty, which warranties the optic and not the purchaser so whether you bought it new or used, the warranty apllies the original craftsmanship.
Thank you for purchasing this instrument and welcome to the world of KAHLES. Since our founding in 1898, the KAHLES community has been committed to providing an ownership experience, which includes our legendary service that is second to none. We sincerely believe that our optics are the best in the world and put them through rigorous tests to ensure that the name you trust is built to the highest standards. But in the unlikely event that you discover a problem in defects in workmanship or materials, we will gladly examine the instrument. KAHLES offers a lifetime warranty on the optical system for products purchased by US residents from an authorized North American dealer. Once examined, if it is determined that the optical system is defective we will repair or replace the instrument or defective part. KAHLES warrants all other parts of the instrument for ten years from date of purchase against defects in materials or workman- ship, subject to normal use. All electronic components are warranted for two years against defects in materials and workmanship, subject to normal use, from date of purchase. All non-optical products (i.e. accessories, tripods etc.) are warranted for one year from date of purchase. This warranty is void if damage results from unauthorized repairs, accident, alteration, misuse, abuse, neglect, fire, flood or other acts of God. If after the warranty period your instru- ment needs servicing please call Consumer Service at (208) 476 0600. At KAHLES, we are totally committed to our customers, products and service. Once you have had the pleasure of owning and using our products, we are sure they will become your trusted companions for life!
Past ten years of use, all repairs are handled on a case by case basis and componant availability plays a big factor.
Regards, and let me know if this is what you were looking for,
