This pair Of German WWII 10 X 80 anti-aircraft (Flak) binoculars was designed in 1946 by Emil Busch for the Zeiss company under the code name “CXN”. The binoculars are supported by a custom 360 degree swivel center mount that is an exclusive feature to each pair of our binoculars. The turn radius is easily controlled by an up and down lever. Not found on any other binocular pair, this custom-designed mount will set your binoculars apart from the rest. To ensure perfection, each mount is hand crafted and assembled by a master craftsman.
Each of our binoculars takes several months to a year to complete a full restoration. Our restoration process includes calibration of optics, hand-polishing of hundreds of intricate parts, and extensive testing that ensures perfect performance for decades. When considering an investment in optics, it’s important to purchase from an expert in this field that understands the intricacy of these instruments. Please note that no two binoculars are the same and have characteristics that make them unique.
Our binoculars have been exhibited at numerous Concours d’ Elegance events, Yacht Shows, Antique Shows, and Art & Design Fairs around the world. We also been featured in magazines including Architectural Digest, South Florida Design, Dupont Registry, Luxe, Hamptons, and Robb Report.
