Hi All,
I have been trying to find some information about these binoculars that were left to me by my father in law.
They are in pretty good condition and the image is really clear. The thing is, I have been trying to find the age of these but I cannot seem to find any type of catalogue or list with these ones in.
So I was wondering if anybody could link me to anywhere that may be of use. What seems to throw me is I cannot find anyting with W.KROMBACH.
Thanks in advance

normjackson, post 2,
I can not add more information about Krombach as the information supplied in my report (in DUTCH), you refer to. Much be easy to translate with the help of Google translate.
I received the information from Krombach itself as well as from data I had already collected.

Many thanks Gijs and NormJackson,
Would you be able to have a rough guess as to how old they are? I am assuming that the number on the front is not the serial number as it's pretty low compared with some I've seen. I think the case is the original, but no markings apart from "Made in Germany"
I appreciate your help, and reading your report, I have come to the right place.
Once again, thankyou
