Description: These binoculars are in excellent condition. There is a little minor wear on the body. The glass is in pristine condition. The serial number is 1852765. These binoculars were manufactured in 1984.

“The Zeiss 7x42 B Dialyt (or Classic) is unusual in combining old-world elegance with still-potent performance.

Its abiding beauty derives from its functional design, like that of other German industrial-design icons from the 1980s. But near-perfect products of 1980s Germany, of which group the 7x42 B Dialyt is a first-class member, are today remembered so fondly that many German factories still trade on their nostalgia.

Additional photos available upon request.

But the appeal of the 7x42 B Dialyt goes far beyond aesthetics. The balance of key specifications and optical aberrations is valid even today. The Abbe-Koenig prisms are not only very bright but also immune to loss of brightness by tarnishing over time.

In fact, the timelessness of this binocular accounts for much of its appeal. The quality of materials and build remains unsurpassed, the industrial design will forever appeal to discerning eyes, and there is very little to go wrong that couldn’t be fixed by a competent repairperson 50 years down the line. It’s a functional heirloom that can realistically be expected to perform useful work for a couple of lifetimes.”
