Sick at home, and browsing the web. I never knew Zeiss had this:

The new line in AEL?

Somebody lifted a Zeiss-Ikon decal & pasted it on worn out door lock.

You stil can get new Ikon door locks:

Mention: fine mechanics crafting a camera or a door lock is quite similar.

Some lenses are only useful as door stops. Zeiss has always been one step ahead the competition - that's why they made a door lock. It makes sense, isn't it? Laughing

Nope, no door stop, but parabolic mirror & lens & finder - that's Zessi!

Tuzki with lens
And for the door it fits too!
Clue tomorrow!

For the sedan car Zeiss-internal-control-finder is a must.
Housenumbers, streetsigns, road signs you can comfortable light with the internal-control-finder Zessi, without opening window. Also turn around and driving backwards it gives best service pending on its moveability.
Like all Zeiss-headlights its equipped with a high class crystalglass-parabolic mirror.
Brightness will constant over years.
For each car easy to fix.
