• Leitz 10 x 80 Military Binoculars

    An excellent 10 x 80 (10 power magnification and 80 mm objective lenses) double telescope binocular by renowned optical manufacturer Ernst Leitz of Germany. This model was designed by Emil Busch in 1935, adopted by the military in 1936 and went into production with various modifications and manufacturers including Leitz. The model proved to be extremely versatile; the rugged construction made it suitable for both day and night time observation and the direction of fire from artillery and flak stations. The side stamping is useful for identifying the binocular type (10 x 80) and the manufacturer’s identification code (beh). The binoculars have been stripped of their original paint, the cast aluminium polished to a mirror finish, and then mounted on a custom made bracket fitted to a period wooden tripod stand. The optics have been fully refurbished to the highest standards.

    Dimensions: 37 cm/14½ inches (length of binocular).
