An exceptional and rare pair of post-WWII 20 x 120 United States Navy Bridge Binoculars manufactured by the Kollmorgen Optical Co., of Northampton, Massachusetts. The huge 120mm objective lenses are coated and feature a super-wide field of view. There are two levers underneath the eyepiece housings: the right one controls the optic width and the left one operating the built-in polarizing filters.
The stand features an up/down height adjustment and 360 degree positioning plate with pointer and knob which tightens and locks the binoculars into a given position. The binoculars have a built-in set of brass handles with rubber grips for easy movement and view adjustment.
These binoculars were originally mounted on a railing on top of a ship’s bridge, and now rest on a custom-made steel stand on four pivoting wheels for easy relocation. The binoculars have been professionally serviced and hand polished to show the incredible engineering to its full effect. The binoculars are mounted on an original stunning brass adjustable mount.
The optics on this set produces a clear, highly magnified image of the highest quality imaginable.
The most exceptional set of binoculars we have ever had available for sale.
