Hi. The binoculars on sale in the provided link are a Monarch 5 8x42 (AFAIK, there's Monarch series 5, 7 and HG, but no 6). The 6,3⁰ figure is the field of view in degrees, a little narrow for a 8x42, and probably the weakest point in those otherwise nice binoculars :)

Thank you very much for chiming in - due to concern about fakes I decided to pauperize myself a tiny bit and got a pair advertised as a 5 from a more practiced seller - thank you for the insight!
