swarobright coatings starting year

Recently I found an old SLC 10x50 from 2001 and i am curious if it has swarobright coatings. Which is the first year swaroright, swarotop and swarodur was introduced and used in SLC and EL respectively? Many thanks!

Swarobright was on EL from the beginning. SLC got it at same time or immediately after - around 1999 or 2000 I think. You should be able to see the difference. Older bins had noticeable yellow tint. You may find in an old thread the serial number corresponding to the change, or call Swarovski to find out.
