Binopedia News / New categories structure on Binopedia
« Last post by Martin Soerensen on Today at 05:31:27 PM »
dear fellow members,

a quick notification for all members about changes to the forum categories.

Since 12 months we have had more then 9000 posts, which we are very pleased with. To ensure the forum can become more easy to navigate in the future as the amount of posts increase, there will a new layout to the sections.
This will be done in the course of October, and all old posts will be moved to the appropriate sections.

The Premium Membership Section for Research and Historic Documents is the first to be restructured.

If you have questions or ideas, please reach out directly on info@binopedia.info

regards
Martin

Dear Rodolfo

I checked my database and there are no other sloped shoulders below number 10223 (first with logo). The last one with logo is 11995 (both examples are 12 Fach)

Your 8487 will remain a mystery.

Regards

Thomas

Again and again (to me) new Schütz Kassel binocular models pop up!

Often Schütz models hide behind retailers names. So far, I've found Schütz binoculars under the mark Aitchison, Foth, Geller, Leisegang, Monos-Werke, Dr. Wöhler, Isus Werke Rathenow, Pollux, Joseph Rodenstock, and other names.

Here a Leisegang Stereoplast 10x(25), made around 1910, is presented. It is a central focused 10x25 model. As a special feature, we find spaced objectives, very unusual for early Schütz models! "Stereoplast" means "having a stereoscopic view". Appropriate models were often advertised by all optical companies before WW1.

The model reminds of the individual focus Armee-Modell C. Probably, the above binocular is the civilian variant of it (or the other way round... ;))

Unfortunately, I have no clue, what the original Schütz name of the model is.

Special thanks to Uwe Derstroff for providing the extremly rare Schütz leaflet from 1905. :)

Dear David,

your Silvarem should be immediately after WWI war (1919)

For the backelite Eyepiece, you can ask to James Noonan, who is also a member of our forum. He is a very reliable person. I certainly think it's worth it  :)

Gentlemen,

Thank you for your input and the information. I thought they were made around 1904/5 , good to know that Thomas can confirm this. Incidentally, my binoculars have the original case and strap which I assume is a good thing? As it happens, whilst not a collector, I also happen to own a pair of Silvarem 6 x 30 ( serial No. 1056283 ). These are in worn condition and are missing their eyepieces. I assume it is possible to obtain replacements somewhere on the net but not sure if it is worth doing? These have a small retailers mark, Chadburns Ltd - Liverpool inscribed on the tiny central circular disc attached to the "focus" wheel, sorry, I don't know the correct terminology? They also have a previous owners name and address (Liverpool) inscribed on them.

Regards to all,
