Hi,

from the model number probably only to a degree, but the serial number can certainly be matched against the records at Zeiss. Not sure if the data is publicly available though, like with Carl Zeiss Jena.

Serial numbers for Zeiss binoculars are not consecutive. There are also different ranges of numbers for various products.

If you give me the serial number I will look it up for you.

Thanks Gary - I suspected this for current Zeiss formerly known as Zeiss West/Oberkochen.
