Product Description

The 1940 U.S. Navy Bureau of Ships Mark II Sextant, manufactured by the esteemed David White Company in Milwaukee, is a true treasure for maritime enthusiasts and collectors alike. During World War II, these sextants played a crucial role in determining a ship’s location at sea, helping sailors navigate the vast ocean by measuring the angle between celestial objects and the horizon. The 1940 U.S. Navy Bureau Of Ships Mark II Sextant boasts a sturdy aluminum frame and exquisite graduations etched onto its arc, combining both functionality and a charming nautical design that has made it highly sought-after by collectors.
