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.

SOURCE: Old Zeiss binos disassembly

It's almost certainly held in place with Canada Balsam, also known as lens cement. This is a turpentine resin.

If so then heating to around 150 Celsius will melt the resin to release the focussing ring assembly; a hairdyer held closely usually works but don't use a heat gun as it's far too hot.

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!

Carl Zeiss Jena is East German manufacture, that is why you don't find it in the Zeiss catalogue (it isn't Zeiss). It is also almost certainly post-war, as there was no East Germany before WW2.

Carl Zeiss Jena made inexpensive optical equipment for export to the West. The optical quality was fairly high, but not as good as the West German Zeiss, and the finish was less good.

I have Zeiss Jena Dekaris 10x50 ser 1740081 what


The manufacturer was Carl Zeiss AG in Jena, Germany. The serial number indicates a manufacturing date of between 1936 and 1940 (1,700,000 starts in 1936 and 1940 starts with 1,980,000) so your's is likely to be around 1936/1937. Some basic specs can be found here
If you're interested in the company history, have a look on wikipedia or check out the website of the Zeiss Historica Society
Hope that helps
