20 th Cent ROYAL NAVY QINTANT / SEXTANT WITH PEDIGREE
GUARANTEED ORIGINAL!
 

 
Royal Navy Cary, London Quintant
1911
 
 
Presented is an antique quintant, serial number 3251 matching entirely throughout, with a classic "T" frame made by Carey of London, Ca 1900. The quintant is in its last used condition having been maintained by B. Warburton Lee, RN whose name is engraved on a brass plaque on the case's lid, and on the instrument. The mirrors show their age and need to be re-silvered for use, but as a collectable should be left as is. The beautifully turned Rosewood handle is elegant. The index arm clamp, and swing arm magnifier are complete and in good working order. The frame is finished in its original gun metal blue black finish with some discoloration, but otherwise in excellent condition. The instrument has its original sighting tube, two telescopes, marked 3251, and one ocular lens cap. Missing is a second lens cap and adjustment pick and wrench.
 
The polished arc and silver scale is calibrated -5 to 155 degrees with a vernier scale reading from the right from 0 to 10 arc seconds in 2 second intervals. The sextant has three horizontal shades and four vertical shades, all in good order. The instrument and it's accessories are housed in the fitted military style hard wood carrying case which has brass hinges and latches, campaign chest handle and engraved brass plaque on its top with the owners name.
 
Captain Bernard Armitage Warburton Lee, RN, VC, is the famous English WW II hero of the First Battle of Narvik, Norway. Warburton Lee at that time commanded the British Destroyer Flotilla consisting of HMS's Hardy, Havock, Hostile, Hotspur and Hunter who engaged the German shore batteries and warships in a fierce duel to the death which cost the captain his life. For his exploits in this engagement he was awarded Britain's highest decoration for valor in combat, the Victoria Cross posthumously. During WW II only 23 Victory Crosses were awarded to members of the Royal Navy and Royal Navy Reserve, and of those only approximately 11 survived. How his sextant / quintant found its way to these shores is unknown.

THE CERTIFICATE is the original issued by National Physical Laboratory in February, 1911. The non-adjustable instrument error is no greater that 20 arc seconds from 75 degrees through 120 degrees, the extent of the range measured,

FROM WEBSTER'S LIST OF INSTRUMENT MAKERS: CARY & CO is from a long line of English instrument makers that seemingly are related to one another. Webster's has this company established in 1765 and located at 181 Strand, London, and later ar 7 Pall Mall, two doors East from Waterloo Place, London, S.W.
 
CREDENTIALS: We are one of the few people on eBay selling navigation instruments that know anything about them. For purposes of judging whether my opinion counts, I was the editor of the chapter on sextants of the 1977 Edition of "Bowditch", The American Practical Navigator, NAVPUB 9; a member of the U.S. Naval Academy Navigation Symposium Board, 1975-1978; the author of a book on marine sextants, Cornell Maritime Press,1975, and the founding president of Nautech Maritime Corporation which partnered with Tamaya of Japan in the introduction of the MS 733 Spica, the MS 833, Jupiter, MS 933 Venus sextants and the famous NC-2 navigation computer, in the U.S. market. I  am also a retired Master Mariner, and held a U.S. Navy "D" Qualification as a Senior Skipper - Oceans.
This quintant / sextant is an outstanding example of an elegant tulip framed model and
rates 5 Stars.
CONDITION: The instrument, and all its hardware are all in remarkably good condition as is noted elsewhere. Everything is present and in good working order except for a few incidentals like a lens cap, adjustment wrench and pick. There is nothing to mark this sextant down for except that the gun metal bluing is slightly discolored in places and the case has an age crack in its bottom, but is still sturdy. with a nice patina of age and is in exceptional quality overall. All numbers match.
CASE DIMENSIONS: 10" L x 10 1/2" D" L x 5" H    
INSTRUMENT WEIGHT    2 LBS 8 OZ
 
GUARANTEE OF SATISFACTION: You must be fully satisfied with your purchase on arrival and that our description is entirely accurate or your money back.

Rarely do you find an instrument that is that is 95 years old in this well preserved original condition. A superior addition to any collection.

The instrument has its original sighting tube, telescope, ocular lens cap, and adjustment pick and wrench.
 
The polished arc and silver scale is calibrated -5 to 130 degrees with a vernier scale reading from the right from 0 to 25 arc seconds in 5 second intervals. The sextant has three horizontal shades and four vertical shades, all in good order.
