Today I was given the above camera with Pantar 45mm f2.8 lens in absolutely mint condition, even the elegant brown leather case has no marks,It was FREE I don't know what I will do with it but it certainly is a nice looking camera.

Do you know which model Contina you have?

I went to Collectiblend to have a look at it and discovered that Zeiss made at least 16 different models:

Cute looking little camera. Looks like a range-focusing model (no rangefinder window).

Does the meter still work?

Yes the meter works, I don't think the camera was used much it is in such great condition.
