Product Description

A very fine condition British boxed Sextant, by Henry Hughes & Son Ltd.

The sextant is complete with spare viewing lenses and low light reading torch. There is also a Care & Maintenance Manual. The sextant is made of a japanned bronze frame with gilded bronze lenses. It has the HUSUN trademark and is numbered 21570. The angled scale is clearly legible, going from 135 down to -10 degrees. It is engraved H. Hughes & Son Ltd, 50 Fenchurch St. London E.C.

There is also a micrometre for precise readings and the control wheel is made of white bakelite. The small light aids reading the measurement in poor light. It is powered by batteries in the wood handle. The wiring is intact, but we do not know if the light works. Apart from the standard wide lens, there’s another for very bright light and another telescopic one. The mahogany wooden box is lined inside with olive green baize. On the underside of the lid is the Quality control and Calibration certificate. It is the one provided from factory and is dated 28.05.38. The outside of the box is in very good condition apart from a repaired split on the lid. There is also a ‘Care and Maintenance of the Sextant’ booklet from Henry Hughes & Son.

Condition is fair as it has to be folded to fit in the box.
