Theatre binoculars - NEW

Condition: Mint in box

From the first period of its activity, Carl Zeiss was involved also in the field of opera glasses. The first models (before 1907) with a 4x magnification, were used for general touristic purposes and theatre.

The GALAN model, was the third theatre binoculars made by Zeiss, between 1924 and 1934; it differs from the previous models for many features.

In 1924, with the purpose of making a theatre binoculars suitable to all bags, Zeiss started to make binoculars with simplified optical and mechanical binoculars. Thus it was a Galilean binocular with central adjustment (Mitteltrieb) and without the interpupillary distance adjuster.

Its optical features were excellent for a binocular to be used at the theatre. With its brightness, magnification 2 1/2, FOV 210/1000 m and a weight of 208 g, it is possible to easily see the whole view.

Interesting fact: three different versions with a different interpupillary distance were offered to customers. 61 mm, 64 mm e 67 mm. Sometimes, the interpupillary distance is not indicate on the binoculars, so we can think that the buyer should test it like a pair of glasses.

    Good morning I'm sorry I only realized when I took it apart that the inside of 1 glass was glued.
    but when it is hanging, one can not see why and within.
    I'm ready to re-examine a small part of the lamp.
    what do you think????

    Der Joystick defekt, CD Fach lässt sich nur mit Fingernägeln öffnen.
    Auch weder Ladekabel noch Datenkabel...
    Geprüft wurde vom Verkäufer wohl nur ob das Gerät angeht...

    Did you have 2 weeks to realize that it did not work ????
    usually when I buy a thing on the day or the next day I resort to replace it.
    You 2 weeks ???
    we are not stupid.
    You used it and broke it because it worked very well.
    Then if you read in the description there is not written that contained the cables that you request.
    IF you are not able to read, I advise you to go back to school for children.
    goodbye.

    The pack was sent to you the 28th August and now on the 17th of October you tell us you had a problem?
    After 2 months?
    You never wrote a request. You just give us a negative feedback. Unfair.
    Nobody told us the packaging wasn't enought. Read the other feedback.
    You aren't a serious person.

    Sconsiglio a tutti questi venditore perché non solo spedisce oggetti difettosi pur dichiarandoli “perfettamente funzionanti” ma è anche una persona aggressiva e scortese. Al mio appunto che un componente era guasto, ha risposto: “cosa pretendi per 50€ ?” A dimostrazione che sapeva in partenza che vendeva un oggetto non funzionante.. Diffidate da lui perché mancavano dei cavi RCA e mi detto di averli spediti.. non sono arrivati!!!

    Solo un deficiente come te può scrivere queste stupidate.
    Il classico Italiano che non capisce niente.
    Ti avevo scritto di rimandamelo oppure di portarlo in assistenza che avrei pagato io la riparazione.
    Sono io lo scortese??? Sei tu che sei un cretino.
