Vintage Wacht Hensoldt-lietz Leitz Wetzlar Dialyt Binoculars & Original Case :
For sale, a pair of vintage binoculars with original case. The markings read, "Hensoldt-Lietz Wetzlar-San Francisco." It also has the logo that reads, "WACHT" with an arrow through it. The opposite side reads "Dial y t" & "X6" near the 60 & 70. The cylinders are leather bound and the glass is all intact. Works very well. One of the eye cups (bakelite?) is damaged but does nothing to the functionality of the binoculars. The original leather strap is intact. The leather case is intact except for what I'm guessing was a compass of some sort on the top - it is missing. Through my own non-expert research, I have found that the 'Lietz' name is spelled with 'E-I' sometimes. Also, since Hensoldt was still using the "WACHT" logo with an arrow, it means that it was made between 1910 & 1920. I can also only assume that since it has a U.S. city on it as well as German, that it was made before America's entrance into WWI, or afterwards. If anyone has info about this item and its history, it would be greatly appreciated and shared with potential buyers. Weight with case: 2 lbs, 1 oz. . Will be packed and shipped safely and securely.
