Hi Xavier, funny translation of "Kriegsausführung". It means, that this items were manufactured under the harder conditions of wartime. In WW1 and WW2 the german industry had to work with substitute materials ( bakelite, plastic-fibre, Buna, synthetic gasoline, Lignit,...) instead of rare metals or products from rubber or oil. Items were marked with the description "Kriegsausführung" to excuse by the customer for the rougher finish or bad colour. Mostly they were from a similar good quality than pre-war items.
The shortcut "KF" on an optical Instrument means "Kältefett" (translate this!!). The mechanical components inside were treated with a special lubrication --Kältefett-- and then sealed so they can stand lower temperatures like in the Russian winter or on board of warships operating in the polar circle.

I inherited a Hensoldt wetzlar dialyt 10X50 binocular recently. It is a sand color over metal with individually adjustable eyepieces. The case is black. The body is marked Hensoldt Wetzlar 22070 on one side and Dialyt 10X50 on the other. About how old are these. I got them from my aunt, her hubsand served in the U.S.Army in Europe in WWII and was station in Berlin after the war.


I think I found them in your database. They are the same as this posting, but sand colored. I have not found any markings on the case, which is identical, but black in color. Would they be of about the same period?

Hi,
I seem to have similar Huet 7x50 type bino's to those quoted in your list. Anyone know any futher info on these. Are they common? Where they used on U-Boats?

BTW These came from a Top Canadian General whom landed in France on D-Day.

Regards,
Roger

A few of mine.

Xavier , a few of mine. I have not been able to buy any new German stuff for a while ,some of these you may know.
Two blc Ubootglas an 8x60 and a 7x50.
The black on the 8x60 was not a war time application and has now been removed.
The benutzers unfortunatley missing from both sets.
the other two both CZ 7x50 navay bins. , have seen numerous photographic examples show tesesets being used by watch crews on UBoats and surface ships.
The leather benutzer is a very rare type, this set has full kgm eagle and related markings.
Second jpeg shows 8x60 after cleaning of the body, the pea green paint was almost intact.
