C. Plath Nonius sextant ca. 1917 in teak wooden box

For use by Plath it is quite rare. The sextant has an issue card in the name of 1931, but serial number 7906 indicates manufacture in ca. 1917. In beautiful condition with two searchers. A 4 x magnifying standard viewfinder with clear and sharp image and a so-called rear viewfinder. Has the D.S. brand of the Deutsche Seewarte as a sign of suitability. Both index mirror and horizontal mirror are inta. All filters are unbroken and clear. With all accessories such as filter, brush and set key. Everything in a beautiful teak box This has a shrink tear on the underside. In addition, a re-calibration card from 1953, which also shows that the sextant is without errors and ready for immediate use. As well as an invoice. In that year, the sextant was present on the engine ship "Katharina Kolkmann". This ship sank in 1964 in the Canal after collision with an English ship.
In short, a beautiful sextant in a scarce version with all accessories in a beautiful teak wooden box.

    Geachte Rogé, dank voor de positieve feedback. Deze pen komt uit een collectie van een vriend op leeftijd, die zijn verzameling pennen heeft beëindigd. Hij heeft de pen zo, op deze wijze indertijd gekocht bij Groen in Wassenaar. Dat was in deze doos met deze accessoires. Er waren geen papieren bij. Op de site: https://tinyurl.com/yyfjgjgr staat de zelfde doos zoals aangeboden. Met groet en dank, René

    Quintant (sextant) de Spencer et Browning Co., Londres, vers 1840
    En bon état d'usage avec trois demandeurs dans une boîte en bois d'acajou.
    Un quintant (sextant) de l'un des fabricants les plus célèbres de Grande-Bretagne, Spencer et Browning Co. Londres. Ce modèle peut être placé sur la base de l'exécution et du modèle aux alentours de 1840. Il s'agit d'un "cadre triangulaire" utilisé à la fin du XVIIIe siècle.
    Ce sextant a un grand arc de 27,5 cm et une plage de mesure sur l’arc de -5 à 155 degrés. Un quintant a un angle mesurable de 72,5 degrés (avec un miroir de 145 degrés). C'est donc de facto un quintant. Le vernier a une subdivision en secondes (2,4,6,8 et 10). Au-dessus du vernier se trouve une loupe de travail avec diffuseur. Sur la voûte est gravée: "Spencer and Browning Co., London et le numéro de série 5262. Il y a une vieille réparation sur le cadre et des dommages à la poignée.
    La monture est en bronze laqué noir pour le protéger des intempé
