Kreigsmarine Ship's Log in fitted case
A scarce example and only the second one we have ever seen offered for sale. The register dial is named to the well known nautical instrument manufacturer W. Ludoph who have been operating from Brenerharven for over 150 years. The dial interestingly features a digital display which must have been an advanced feature 70 years ago. Above the scale is written Seemeilen which translates to mean nautical miles. The bezel is embossed with a clear Waffen Ampt stamp and the numbers 2708 and WB12366. The register is made from an alloy and is finished in Kreigsmarine field grey paint. The fitted pine deck box also contains a shoe (mounting device), a traff rail log governer, rotator, hooks and cordage. The metal parts show some rust but the set is in "sleepy" condition, exactly as it must have been when it came out of service. The register appears to be in working order but is for sale as a collector's item.
