Premium Quality Serialized British
Admiral's Antique Reproduction
Micrometer Drum Readout
Black Finished Solid Brass
Sextant with Two Telescopes
and a Hardwood Case
We are pleased to offer this beautiful full-sized reproduction of the British Admiral's micrometer drum brass sextant.
It is the Stanley London® premium quality Admiral's nautical sextant.
There are six swing-arm filters mounted on heavy filter mounts.
The bottom of the index arm can be squeezed to pull the micrometer pinion away from the
ground rack, allowing fast, large angular movements of the index arm.
In order to minimize reflections, the solid brass sextant has a black finish.
The sextant comes complete with two interchangeable telescopes.
The standard black 2-power non-inverting (upright) telescope produces a very bright and sharp erect image and
measures 4 1/2 inches (11.4 cm) long and has a 28mm objective lens.
Producing a more magnified image is the silver 4-power inverting sighting tube, which is 7 inches (17.8 cm) long and has a 22mm objective lens.
The mirrors are correctly adjusted prior to being shipped, and future adjustments can be
made using the adjustment screws on the index and horizon mirrors.
Marked on the index arm of each sextant is a unique serial number.
There is a large hardwood handle on the back of the sextant.
The sextant's limb has a 7 inch
(17.8 cm) radius and the sextant measures 9 3/8 inches
(23.8 cm) wide and
10 inches (25.4 cm) tall, and 5 inches (12.7 cm) deep.
The sextant is very solid and weighs 4 pounds, 6 ounces (2.0 kg) with the standard telescope,
and the sextant with the hardwood case weighs over 10 pounds (4.5 kg).
The sextant comes with a beautiful blue velvet-lined hardwood case with storage for both telescopes
and the sextant.
Just like the original antique, the top of the box features a laminate coating over the hardwood.
Custom brass plaques are available for the outside of the case,
inside the lid, or both.
While this sextant is fully functional, it does not come with a certificate of calibration
and is not intended for navigation.
The British Admiral's reproduction brass sextant with two telescopes and hardwood case is available for $350.
We also offer the similar C. Plath Reproduction Sextant
and a Calibrated Tamaya Jupiter Sextant suited for navigation.
