You are bidding on a BEAUTIFUL and VERY RARE WW2 German Kriegsmarine Navy Navigational Sextant, as used in many ships and transports!
The German Navy Sextant was used by crew members for long range map calculations. It provided accurate reading, using sidereal (star) navigation.
Made of brass, aluminum, and steel, this is a VERY GOOD German Sextant in all original condition, COMPLETE with it’s original box! Not the common C. Plath variation, this was manufactured by Georg Hechelmann, Hamburg.. The inside lid features the original label/card, and clearly indicates the manufacture, as well as the date of production being, July 1939. Markings indicate it is of military issue. The sextant itself features some very minor marks and scratches, but nothing that takes away from the overall appearance. It measures approx. 11.5″ in length, and retains MOST of the components and accessories. Optics are clear, HOWEVER, it appears someone was in the process of repairing or restoring this. As such, there are some broken and missing parts. All colored filters and mirrors are also present. Due to the damage, I am selling this for parts or repair. Brought back by a US veteran, it would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- 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.
