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. It measures approx. 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!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.
——————- PAYMENT —————–
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.
——————- SHIPPING —————–
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.
