You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe 0-6 km Grobhöhenmesser (Rough Altimeter), Fl. 22317, as ONLY used in German Dive-Bombers and Night Fighters, such as the Me109 G/R6, Ju-87, Ju-88 and Me-110!
This instrument measured the altitude of the aircraft using the surrounding air pressure. This was a secondary altimeter that worked in conjunction with the automatic dive alarm. The pilot would set this altimeter to the correct height in which he wished to pull out of a diving bomb run. Once the aircraft reached that altitude, the aircraft would automatically pull out of the dive and return to parallel flight. It was located on the main instrument panel of the Ju-87, Ju-88, Me-110, and other destroyer (ground attack) aircraft.
Made of bakelite, aluminum and steel, this item is in EXCELLENT used condition! Though there are some slight marks and wear due to the age, there are no breaks or damage! All the adjustment knobs function 100% correctly, and the Fl. number is 100% complete, clearly indicating Fl. 22317 on the dial. I have indicated it’s location in the last photos. A SUPERB addition to any project, collection, or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
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.

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
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. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
