Zeiss 'blc' 7x50 U-boat binoculars + Benutzer
An excellent pair of Zeiss 'blc' coded 7x50 U-boat binoculars in full original condition, complete with all of the rubber armour and also the elusive bakelite Benutzer cover!
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 textured painted finish - unique to the early production period of the 3rd model of Zeiss U-boat binocular.
Despite a small nibble to the edge of of an internal prism (invisible when looking through the correct way), the fixed-focus and coated optics on this pair are truly stunning - producing a crystal clear image.
These come direct from our own personal collection and are about as good as this model of highly sought-after U-boat binoculars get!
