You are bidding on a FANTASTIC and VERY RARE example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Navy Split Second Torpedo Stopwatch / Chronograph, as used by various Submarine and Torpedo Boat crews!
Made of nickel-plated brass, this Imperial Japanese Navy Split Second Torpedo Chronograph Timer is in EXCELLENT functioning condition! In addition to the two main hands, it features two sub-dials, with 30-minute and 60-second displays. The movement is near PERFECT, however I do not see any manufacture information. It features a Japanese Navy acceptance stamp on the inside of the dust cover, as well as numerous Kanji markings on the rear. From what I can translate, it indicates:
Stopwatch Model 3
It is 100% functional, however the 2nd sweep hand does not reset to “0”. This is actually a very easy fix, but I will leave that to the winning bidder to rectify. Some marks and scratches due to the age, but otherwise SUPERB! The ONLY one I have seen of its type, and like most Japanese items it is a VERY RARE item! EXCELLENT addition to any 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.
