SOURCE: Production date for the following Zeiss binocular

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.

I have a carl zeiss jena 8x30 serial # 124690 what year is it


You likely have a set built between 1919 and 1930. If you go to this site (
The history of the telescope the binocular ) and scroll down (or search) to areas with Zeiss Binoculars, there are a number of files that have the information on runs. In my case, I looked at the Spreadsheet attached to the Zeiss Binocular Models entry, which , between lines 150 and 168, notes that binocs with the Lena logo were made from 1904 to 1945, and that serial numbers above 1 million began in 1919 and above 1,550,000 began in 1930, putting your pair in there more or less in the middle.

Cheers!

I also have 2 eyecaps that have broken or lost.


If you haven't contacted Minolta to purchase a replacement set you could try contacting Binoculars.com in the US. They ship international if need be. If Minolta can't help. Measure the circumference of the eyepiece and you could try a different brand of caps. Steiner Binoculars have a number of different caps and I have used their one piece cover on a number of older binoculars I have to protect the eyepiece when I am out and about. I'm in Australia and have used the above company for these parts and they are very helpful.

Where do i find the model number on my steiner binoculars?


The model of Steiner binoculars is on the plastic plates on the body. On earlier models mainly the green rubber covered military types is is molded at the front of the body near the objective lenses. These were called the Military/Marine and are of a different specification to the current Military/Marine. The original were a military bincocular which has more in common with the current Steiner Military. If you are after the serial number it is located on the front metal disc between the binocular barrels on a porro prism binocular. A porro is where the objective lenses are spaced further apart than the eyepieces. On a roof prism Steiner the serial number is located underneath between the two barrels on the hinge. Roof prisms are binoculars where the objective and the eyepieces are in line. If the serial number is a 10 digit number the 1st and 3rd numbers will give you the year of manufacture.
EG: 9042577777= 1994
If it is five or six digit number then it is the 1st and 2nd numbers
EG: 871245= 1987

Hi Ray:
I have Minolta binoculars with the same issue, I believe that I also have the same Minolta model: 10x40mm, roof mounted prisms, 5.6 degrees, waterproof (WR series) and model number j-b35.

Have you found any solution for the loose center hinge?

Binocular Loss Of Fluid


I never figured out how to fix it but I bought them at REI and they were able to find the receipt and get a warranty repair. One problem is Minolta no longer makes binoculars so a service center takes care of warranties.The Minolta site has details.
