Never seen that 8x30 Voigtländer with its low serial number. Must be made pre WW1 or early wartime. Late war zinc plate versions have serial numbers in the 45000-60000 range.

Nice find!

Nice - I too think pre war. (I thought we were only adding imaginary zeroes to Zeiss serials?) ;)

Interesting model indeed! Heavier and taller than usual 8x models. Sorry about these zeroes. Really not sure when to add these and when not  ;)

I think it's just for Zeiss Zbig but don't beat yourself up about it - worse things happen at sea! ;)

Hello,
I have the same one but with a different labelling
and without an serial number.
This 8x30 is much larger  than the Voigtländer Nirvana 8x30
and has longer oculars

Hi Winfried,
here some pictures of the Voigtländer Nirvana.
The nirvana was manufactured as 6x, 8x and 12x and also as monocular.
