    Re: Japanese sextant 1979

    Tamaya I'm pretty sure.  The Bosun name I've never seen before but, if you search eBay or other sites for Tamaya, you'll see the distinctive angled bit of the arm that I think directs light to the micrometer drum. I've never touched a new one but my just-after-the-war Nitto can occasionally be found as an Old Model Tamaya. They were apparently very adaptable if you wanted a sextant with your name on it. I don't know if the quality varied with the names but probably a very good sextant.

    Regards, Noell
