This navy Sextant was used by the navigator to create an artificial horizon and thus help achieve accurate bearings. Made of aluminum and steel. This is an EXCELLENT Japanese Sextant in all original condition. Almost identical to the US Types, it probably dates later in the war, between 1943 and 1945. Some slight marks and scratches, but nothing that takes away from the overall appearance.
11.5 in length, and features no breaks, cracks, or damage! Comes complete with the original cleaning cloth; spare bubble; adjustment tools, eyepiece; filter; and light bulbs! Sadly, the rubber on the eyepiece has hardened over time and is cracked/broken. The adjustment knobs all function correctly, and appears to be functional. Data plate is missing, but I have a spare one if someone wishes to reattach.The box is in excellent used condition, and retains all instruction labels internally. Some wear, marks, and scratches, due to the age, but nothing that detracts. Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc.
, as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period.
