You are bidding on a SUPERB used example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Mountain Troop (24th Division) Pocket Altimeter!
This instrument measured the current altitude using the surrounding air pressure.
Made of brass, aluminum and steel, this is an AMAZING example! Though there are some slight marks and wear, it is VERY solid with no major damage! Some marks and scratches on the glass, but nothing that detracts Retaining approx. 90% original finish, all manufacture information is still present on the data plate, clearly indicating the Type, Manufacture, and Production Year of July 1944. Comes complete in the original leather case, and appears to be 100% functional! Note that I am not sure how accurate it is, so I will leave that up to the winning bidder to determine. Stamped Kanji markings are also on the case. The original adjustment tool is also included. Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!
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. 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.
