Zeiss 'blc' 7x50 U-boat binoculars
A stunning pair of mid-war Zeiss 'blc' coded 7x50 U-boat binoculars in full original condition, complete with all of the rubber armour.
Each U-boat would have carried a complement of 10 of these binoculars for use on watch duties whilst surfaced.
Factory finished in the typical KM shade of yellow/green, this particular set retains 95%+ of the original painted finish .
The fixed-focus and coated optics on this pair are truly stunning, producing a crystal clear image as to be expected from Zeiss optical instruments built to this standard!
Indeed the optics are so good that this pair was still in use until recently and is hence fitted with a secure, modern neck strap (this can be easily replaced if desired).
As such, not only is this example a greatly desirable and collectible piece of U-boat history, but also one that remains fully functional and could easily rival any modern equivalent today!
