OTTMAR BURKHARDT’S Treasure Trove
Okay, here goes: Instead of telling a story with each of these ZEISS, (and a few Leitz, Wetzlar), the finest binoculars ever made, I’d rather give you the short-hand on each, along with a “grade” as to its condition. Mind you, Ottmar never serves up junk! These glasses are for the most part like brand-assed-new! The former owners paid small fortunes for them, new, and this quality of binoculars aren’t available anymore, not even from Zeiss, we’re sorry to say. Many come in the original fitted leather cases, which alone are worth a bloody fortune. (You don’t have one piece of luggage as finely made as these cases). And if you suppose that some of these prices are high, trust us, if they were made today, they’d triple that price!
