These scopes were made over 20 years ago. Were they known as quality scopes back then? Would they still survive and be serviceable now? How say you? Thanks...

They were  quality scopes back when and are quality scopes now. Crystal clear optics despite the fact that the coating system is a bit outdated. If it´s marked West Germany it´s older than 1990.

They will survive and should be serviceable, I would contact Zeiss to confirm the service part.

(I have read somewhere that the Diatal-C were made for US only, probably with 1" tube instead of 26 mm)

They were made for the US market primarily although also available in other countries such as Australia and New Zealand. I still own one in 4x. They're superior in build quality to the Conquest line even though the coatings are outdated, as Gerry said.
