Description

7 X 50 binoculars produced specifically for U Boat crews standing watch on the conning tower bridge. Massive construction with most of the original yellow green finish intact, and complete with the original rubber lens protectors, rubber cap tops and rubber foldable eyepiece covers. The original desiccant containers are also still present, as is the leather neck strap. The rubber shows some small splits as can be seen in the photos. These were manufactured by Carl Zeiss of Jena, wartime coded 'blc'. Unlike other Kriegsmarine binocular types that were made for surface ships and U Boats, this type was produced and designed for U Boats. Rare set!
