I don't know which is better. 
 
The older Vari X-II did not even have the MultiCoat 4 coating that the Leupold Vari X-III had.........
 
Then Leupold rearranged stuff and the new VX 3 got a new coating called the Indexed Matched System.  The VX 2 got promoted to MultiCoat 4.  The VX 1 remained in the back of the bus with the old former Vari-X II coatings from years ago.  So......the older Vari-X II would basically have the current VX 1 coatings. 
 
The Nikon Monarch has the Ultra Clear Coat coatings and is very bright.  Brighter than the MultiCoat 4 system of Leupold. 
 
If it was me, I would get the Nikon.
