Kriegsmarine Battleship deck mounted binoculars.
A particularly beautiful binoculars from Nedinsco in the original first paint, in Kriegsmarine grey.
During the war, Carl Zeiss assembled these binoculars at several European companies, so they can also have minor external differences.
Carl Zeiss made approx. 2750 of these iconic binoculars, with and without war time codes, this one with the anti-moisture cartridges on the side is from 1941/1942.
Very few are known of the 10x80 binoculars assembled at Nedinsco, you can recognize them by the;
different rubber headrest with angled attachment for the eyepiece protection strap, and a different shape of the color filter housing.
The hood doors on the tubes also do not open from the side, but are clipped back on top of the tubes.

The rubber eye cups have a special construction, they are made of brass on the inside with holes to prevent condensation on the lens.
The moist absorbent cartridges and the air inlets and outlets are in Dutch.
The lenses are provided with the well-known blue Zeiss lens coating.
These binoculars are also equipped with adjustable color filters adjustable at the top.
In the run-up to the sale, the binoculars have been uncompromisingly served, cleaned and provided with new collimation.
This 10x80 -20° is therefore still in original condition and has not been painted over!
These binoculars have been used very little, there are few signs of use, the lenses and blue coating are undamaged.
In the left eyepiece is a graticule.
Complete on very rare Ducati gimbals and tripod.
