WW2 Imperial Japanese Navy/Army/Airforce Seikosha Phonotelemeter Stopwatch. This is an awesome WW2 Japanese Army Seikosha Phonotelemeter Stopwatch. It was used by the Imperial Japanese Navy and Infantry to calculate ranges at sea and on the battlefield.
The crown was depressed when one would see the flash from distant enemy artillery being fired, starting the hand in motion. When the sound from the shot finally arrived, the crown would be again depressed, halting the movement, and the pointer would indicate the distance in thousands of meters.
Of course there is also a register toward the top of the dial to account for multiple rotations of the main second hand. This Seikosha Phonotelemeter Stopwatch is in EXCELLENT functioning condition! Almost no marks and scratches, the condition is SUPERB!
The box features some minor marks, scratches, and wear. Like most Japanese items, it is a VERY RARE item. Perfect for any collection or display! This stopwatch was acquired by my father serving in the U.
Army during the postwar occupation of Japan. More pictures and questions answered gladly.
