One of a couple of smaller optical manufacturers in Wetzlar.
They made 8x30 and other models after the last war.
There is a myth that they had developed a special coating giving very high transmission...my specimens have nice but avarage transmission though.
living without binoculars is possible but senseless - paraphrasing Loriot "living without puc is possible ..."

Well I have the chance at a pair in an auction and they looked in nice condition,. so they are post 1945 then?

Winfried Tuerk

So far, I only saw postwar specimens.

Probably, they have coated optics?

Over here they are 25-50 Euros cased.

Yes Rodolfo. This is the common Pfeiffer postwar model.
