A truly stunning example of the highly sought after Kriegsmarine 10×80 (80 degree) naval observation binoculars. This set remains in completely original condition, with 95%+ of the paint remaining to the binocular and likewise to the pivoting cradle mount. The early style Kriegsmarine property and maker markings are situated on the right-hand prism plate. Unlike on many examples, these remain fully intact on this pair, with the’eug’ maker code denoting manufacture by. Optische Prazisions-Werke GmbH, Warsaw. A subsidiary of Carl Zeiss Jena. This model of binocular is widely regarded as one of the very best optical instruments produced during WWII, and this attribute is showcased superbly by this particular pair. The view through the optics is excellent and a pleasure to behold, producing a super bright and sharp image. The circular aiming reticule is also still present internally. The lenses are coated and all remain in excellent condition, with only a few very minor spots of delamination to the lower part of the objectives (see photo 8). This does not affect the image in any way at all. Both the interocular dial and the independent focussing adjustments continue to operate perfectly, with a very smooth action. Overall, a truly amazing piece which is exceptionally hard to find in this condition and would make a top addition to any serious Kriegsmarine or optics collection!
