You are bidding on a SUPERB and VERY RARE example of a 100% WW2 German Kriegsmarine Seekreiselsextant (Gyroscopic Sea Sextant), SKS 3D, as used in many Battleships, Destroyers, Cruisers, and U-Boats!

The Kriegsmarine Oktant was used by navigators for long distance calculations..  It provided accurate reading, using sidereal (star) navigation, and contained a gyroscope for stability at sea.


Made of aluminum and steel, this is a SUPERB German Oktant in all original condition with its original box!  Manufactured by C. Plath of Hamburg, it features the original data label, and clearly indicates all manufacture info.  The instrument dates later in the war, probably between 1943 and 1945.  Some slight marks and scratches, but nothing that takes away from the overall appearance.  It measures approx. 11.5″ in length, and comes complete in the original box!  Also included are various spare parts, as well as the original (and hard to find) eyepiece!  I am not sure if it is functional, so I am selling as-is, and will leave the functionality determination to the winning bidder.  The red filter is cracked (see photo), but that could be replaced, if one wished.  Serial number on the box matches the number on the sextant, which indicates this is an original set.  I have shown this EXACT type in use in the last photos.  Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, or display!


Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

 Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment.

My goal is to ship within 7 days from auction end. However, depending on circumstances, it may take up to an additional 1 week from receipt of confirmed payment. If you need it shipped sooner, please let me know and I will do our best to accommodate.


——————- 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. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. 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.
