Kriegsmarine Electrical Resistance Meter

Manufactured by Siemens, this is the first example of this type we have had here. The instrument looks to be in perfect condition although we are selling as a collectable and can’t guarantee it is still in working order. The case is made of Bakelite and carries a good clear Kiegsmarine Waffenamt property mark with ‘M’ and the code 1V/1. The instrument scale is enclosed behind a glass viewing panel reading from 5000 to zero. The needle is in the 5000 position so we assume in use the instrument measures resistance down from 5000 rather than up from zero. The dial also features the Omega sign, the Greek symbol for resistance. The lower front panel can be released via a screw at the back of the case revealing what we believe to be a dry cell battery compartment. The inside of the access door is embossed 7411-3 and Ms Idr. 216 Tz.3 The top of the meter carries two connector terminals. Like all German instruments of the period this example features super build quality, a tradition that has continued to this day! Measures 7"x 3”x 1.5” (18cm x 7.5cm x 3.5cm)
