Original Berlin Wall Binoculars
Magnificent quality Carl Zeiss RWDF Turret Binoculars (pictured), with 10 x magnification through a 50mm lens.
German Carl Zeiss was widely regarded as the pioneer of his time and is still widely acclaimed today as the master of optics and bifocals.
Binoculars from this period were critical to spotting the enemy, as RADAR was not widely in use.
The Turret Binoculars were used on armoured vechiles during covert operations along the Berlin Wall and German borders.
All of our Binoculars are uniquely restored to a standard unsurpassed. There is no tacky chroming, silver spray-painting or added metallurgy. All parts are original except for the tripod stand which is specially sourced to result in the timeless masterpieces you see today.
Originally painted Military Green, the major cost component of these Binoculars is in the intricate and sophisticated re-work. They are disassembled, stripped, chemically treated, sandblasted, polished and assembled.
Due to the fact that these were designed and developed before the advent of RADAR, the emphasis placed on lens quality was exceptional.
