I have a set of Zeiss Victory 10x40 binoculars. I dropped them recently and the only apparent damage was to one of the small plastic clips where you would attach a neckstrap. is it possible to simply purchase this part without having to send the binoculars off? The protrusion on the binoculars themselves is undamaged. all I need is the part that the strap attaches to. thanks.

You'll want to send them to Zeiss for service, as they will be the only source for needed parts and special tooling to get the job done right. Give them a call at 1-800-441-3005. Best Regards, Ben Lizdas Sales Manager Eagle Optics www.eagleoptics.com
Hi, one of your eyepieces has an twisty eye piece, its printed on the outside + & -, probably the right side? If its the right side you close your left eye and focus with your right, then open both & HEY Presto, you've got vision in both! Thanks Mark
There are no recorded serial numbers for Zeiss binoculars made in West Germany or those made by Zeiss after the fall of the berlin wall. The newer numbers have been a mystery to collectors and so far no one has attempted to publish a list. I have newer models with lower serial numbers than older models in my collection.
The East German Notarems were a little fragile when compared to their West German counterparts. They didn't require too much of a knock to get them out of alignment. To collimate them you need a device called a collimator and its not something you do at home. The Notarem is not an easy unit to take apart. It has a unique locking dioptre ring that is mated with the central focus.
They are definately worth fixing. Not cheap but then again they are not a cheap binocular. You should consult an optical shop in the country where you live. They may know of someone who can fix this. If you are in the UK or don't mind sending the binoculars for repair Kay Optical in the UK has an enviable reputation for repairing old binoculars.
sounds like they dropped hard. there should be lock rings floating around inside. if you can get the front objective ring off, the next lock ring,then the objective should come ouy and you can reset the inside lock ring.....any questions give me a call.........larry @reichinstruments.com
