Classic optics from one of the finest German optics companies, Wild Heerbrugg (later, Leitz/Leica). Presumably, this was manufactured after '86, when Wild Heerbrugg became a subsidiary of Wild Leitz. Construction appears modern, and the elements are coated. Takes 1.25" eyepieces, and fits into a 2" focuser. Very likely could be modified to fit into a 1.25" focuser, as the bottom tube screws off to reveal a small (approx. 0.5") lens. Adjustable focus on one eye and adjustable interpupilary spacing. At places, the black paint is flaking off to reveal the brass underneath. Some parts of the paint appear to have been retouched. Solid metal construction.
