Old German Military Stopwatch Wwii World War Ii Iii Reich Kriegsmarine Germany:
It is offered in sale, a German stopwatch used during the second world war, of the prestigious Hanhart brand, which, works.In the stopwatch sphere, you can see the manufacturer's logo, as well as an indication that the machine has 11 rubies (ANKER 11 STEINE). Below that, you can see the letters KM, which is the abbreviation of Kriegsmarine (German Navy).This stopwatch model has two closing covers on the back. The outermost cover, is attached to a hinge, and the inner cover, carries a text where it is indicated that the stopwatch is anti magnetic (see attached photos). Within the machinery, there is a text where the same thing is indicated on the lid, and that the machinery carries 11 rubies. Also, you can see a tiny mark with the letters AH in a circle (see attached photos)..
This is a VERY RARE stopwatch to get, which, was manufactured for use by the German Navy Kriegsmarine, which, was used in U-boat German submarines to calculate the impact time of the torpedoes when they were fired.The stopwatch is very well preserved for the number of years it has, and it is noteworthy that it is accompanied by its box, and a photo of the former owner (see attached photos). On the back of the photo, you see a notation in German that means Christmas of 1942 !.The diameter of the body (size) is 51 millimeters without counting the crown.Other features:Nickel-chrome case.It has one button push: to wind, start, stop, and to place the needles at 0.
It has two needles, which, the largest is to calculate seconds (30 seconds), and the smallest needle calculates the minutes (15 minutes).The exterior numbers time in seconds and every second has, as you can see, five divisions equivalent to two tenths of a second.The internal red numbers believe that they fulfill a function equal to that of other stopwatchs, although I do not know if this is so because the scale is different, they mark the distance traveled by the target in a certain time. This measurement is the one that is made while observing the target while following its route, and it is only valid if the length of the target is known, and it is useful to know the speed of the target, which is an important data to calculate the firing resolution of the torpedoes.To obtain this information, the officer who observes the periscope warns a member of the crew next to him to start timing when the target passes through a reference mark in the periscope or UZO, and when the white has completely passed that mark, stops the stopwatch and calculates the speed.The stopwatch is also used to know the moment when the torpedo must hit the target and control the course of the torpedo. Say that for example a torpedo launched at a distance to the target of 1000 meters at 30 knots, it takes more than 1 minute to reach it, time that is measured with the stopwatch.It's a stopwatch which is very rare to get!
In the ad, 12 photos are attached, where you can see the good state of conservation of the lot.Interesting piece very, but very rare to get!
