Vintage Japanese WWII Kogaku Big-Eyed Binoculars


Out of stock


This is a terrific pair of vintage Japanese WWII big-eyed binoculars. These were manufactured in 1943, and used on Japanese battle ships.

While the U.S. and the allied powers were developing radar systems, the Japanese depended on these binoculars to warn of approaching ships.  They could see another vessel, up to 20 miles away, on the open ocean.

This pair of binoculars comes with a brass stand, which as far as I know, are the only pair on the internet with the stand.  The stand was made to mount on the battleship, so it does not sit down on a flat surface.  You would need to make a base for them to sit on.

With the stand they are 14″ L X 10″ W X 16″ T.

Take a look at the pictures, and if you have any questions, please e-mail.
