Query re Zeiss 6 x 42 B

Hello Im new to this site but have been a keen birdwatcher for over 25 years. Recently I inherited my dad's binoculars Zeiss 6 x 42 B which seem to be very good quality, and ive been surprized by the posts regarding their value.
But despite that it should be most basic, I cannot adjust the width at all ! They seem to be either fixed or seized, should I try CRC ?? All suggestions welcome !

If not give OSA a call to sort it out as they are the distributor. For my last pair, I actually sent it to Germany directly for repairs. 2 weeks later got a brand new pair as my eye cup broke.

Hi,

first of all, welcome to BF!

Are you very sure about the model? I could find only one 6x42 version which is a military model from WWI...

Google Zeiss 6x42B Dialyt, or Dialyt Skipper. It is a contemporary of the 7x42 BGATP.

Ah thanks, I had CZJ in mind, not Hensoldt/Zeiss West...
