This Stanley London® premium quality Admiral's nautical sextant is a beautiful full sized reproduction of the British Admiral's micrometer drum brass sextant. There are six swing-arm filters mounted on heavy filter mounts. The solid brass sextant has a black finish to reduce reflections. 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. The sextant comes complete with two interchangeable telescopes. The standard black 2-power non-inverting telescope is 4 1/2 inches (11.4 cm) long has a 28mm objective lens and produces a very bright and clear erect image. The silver 4-power inverting sighting tube is 7 inches (17.8 cm) long has a 22mm objective lens and produces a more magnified image. The sextant is shipped with the mirrors correctly adjusted, and further adjustments can be made using the adjustment screws on the index and horizon mirrors. Each sextant is marked with a unique serial number on the index arm. On the back of the sextant is a large hardwood handle. 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.
