During World War II, German soldiers in the Wehrmacht, the unified armed forces of Germany from 1935 to 1945, soldiers who required corrective lenses were issued a pair of glasses identical to the WWII German service glasses offered today by Keepshooting.com. In fact, they were issued to troops in all of the service branches of the Wehrmacht, both official and unofficial, including the heer, or "army," the kriegsmarine, or "navy," the luftwaffe, or "air force" and the Waffen-SS, the combat branch of the Schutzstaffel, commonly known as the SS.
All WWII German service glasses offered by Keepshooting.com are, as noted, reproductions of the original dienst-brille, or "service glasses" issued to German soldiers during WWII. As such, each pair of glasses is in brand new condition, free of wear and tear, and ready to hug your face.
Each pair of WWII German service glasses ships with clear non-prescription lenses but can be fitted with prescription lenses by a licensed optometrist. These simple metal-frame glasses present a scaled-down, period look and include flexible temple covers for extreme comfort and wearability. All glasses ship in a gray metallic case, also a period piece, with the words dienst-brille emblazoned across the top. Inside the case, you will find a small, blue cardboard rectangle that is designed to protect the reproduction prescription card that is housed underneath.
No matter what your reason for desiring our WWII German service glasses, they are a piece that will surely please. From collectors of German militaria to those seeking a refined look, these glasses are the answer.
