Hi guys

I recently purchased binoculars marked Zeiss Weitzler 6x30
Serial no. 70972
I can't find documentation to confirm their authenticity.
Does anybody know anything about these vintage binoculars?

I have never heard of any fakes made on these (west)german binoculars made in the Wetzlar area.

Flick an e-mail to Zeiss, give them the info you have and ask for information, or try to find your binocular and serial number starting on this page:

There´s a lot of info in the various posts there. Below is an extract:

if the spelling is like you posted
Zeiss Weitzler 6x30
they are taiwan or japan look-alike, not necessarily bad but certainly a dime a dozen. 
Zeiss was never based in Weitzler, 
Wetzlar is hometown for Leica and a few others.

So I´ve learned something new again.....

Wetzlar/Oberkochen (West) German Zeiss

Weitzler some imaginary place somewhere in the China/Japan area.
