    Help me deal with the text on the case. 20200312_170951.jpg 20200312_171005.jpg 20200312_171106.jpg 20200312_171134.jpg 20200312_171200.jpg 20200312_171312.jpg
    1927 Decent condition, lenses without fungus, clear image. The condition of the case in the photo. the mechanics are working fine. A rare instance, on its 30th anniversary (Zum 30 jähr Ortsjubiläum dem verehrten Seelenhirten) (Die dankbaren Winzenberger). Winzenberger - it seems the surname of the hero of the day. Case size 160x100 mm.

    This is probably not accurate. Maybe @Fid can shed some light.

    Google translate:

    Zum 30 jähr Ortsjubiläum dem verehrten Seelenhirten:
    For the 30th anniversary of the revered soul shepherd

    Die dankbaren Winzenberger:
    The grateful Winzenberger

    It is correct. Ortsjubiläum is the anniversary of a pastor (the Seelenhirte or spiritual shepherd) having been appointed to a parish, in this case in Winzenberg.
    I know of a Winzenberg in Alsace, but there could be others in other regions.

    Winzenberg in France is the name of a small grand-cru vineyard (or terroir). it makes no sense to walk around there with binoculars.
    I'd research if the German Winzenberg near Lippe had hunting grounds.

    The fact is that the text is written in the factory way. This is not just someone added.

    Not in this case, the way the text is written it refers to the people of Winzenberg.

    it's "30 jähr." for "30 jährigen".
    "Seelenhirte" points towards a Catholic member of the clergy; Protestants don't need a shepherd because they have a direct "phone line" to God .
