Product Description

A very fine condition Dutch boxed Sextant, by N.V. Observator, of Rotterdam.

The sextant is complete with spare bright sunlight viewing eyepiece filter and small selection of maintenance and adjustment tools. The sextant is made of a japanned bronze frame with a polished bronze angle arc. It has the N.V. Observator trademark and is numbered 5953, which dates it to 1956. The model is sometimes referred to as the ‘Classic’. The angled scale is clearly legible, going from 125 down to -5 degrees. There is also a micrometre for precise readings and the control wheel is made of white bakelite. The mahogany wooden box is unlined inside. On the underside of the lid is the Perspex sheet to protect the Quality control and Calibration certificate.

The outside of the box is in very good condition apart from some oxidisation of the nickel plated brass fittings.
