Premium Quality C. Plath
Reproduction Micrometer Drum
Readout Serialized Brass Sextant
with Hardwood Case
The German C. Plath sextant is regarded as the "Rolls Royce" of nautical sextants.
This is the best sextant that we offer.
This Stanley London® premium quality 6 1/2 inch (16.5 cm) radius sextant is a beautiful
full scale reproduction of the venerable C. Plath micrometer drum brass sextant.
Each sextant has a unique serial number stamped on the handle.
The sextant measures 9 1/4 inches (23.5 cm) wide and 9 3/8 inches (23.8 cm) tall, and
5 inches (12.7 cm) deep (not including the telescope).
The sextant weighs 5 pounds, 6 ounces (2.4 kg), and the sextant with the hardwood case weighs 8.9 pounds (4 kg).
There are six swing-arm filters mounted on thick brass filter mounts.
The telescope has a large objective lens and produces a very bright and clear erect image.
There are a pair of levers that when squeezed, pull the micrometer
pinion away from the ground rack, allowing fast large angular movements of the index arm.
The sextant is shipped with the mirrors correctly adjusted, and further adjustments can be
made using three inset adjustment screws.
The limb on the sextant is engraved "Stanley London."
On the back of the sextant is a hardwood handle.
The sextant comes with a beautiful felt-lined hardwood case which weighs 3 pounds 8 ounces(1.6 kg).
The case has front clasps and a handle.
Custom brass plaques are available for the case.
While this sextant is fully functional, it does not come with a certificate of calibration
and is not intended for navigation.
We also offer the similar British Admiral's Sextant and a
Calibrated Tamaya Jupiter Sextant suited for navigation.
The C. Plath reproduction brass sextant with hardwood case is available for $339.
