WWII USN Submarine Depth Gauge

SOLD! for $

Categories: ,

This is your chance to own an Authentic WWII US Navy Submarine Depth Gauge, picked right off a month balled WWII Sub many years ago. During its service at sea, this gauge ‘s submarine spent most of her time on the surface of the ocean, and only submerged when necessary. For that reason, the maximum depth she could safely plunge to was 165 feet, which is clearly marked on the gauge. The red hands are stationary and are used to indicate the preferred and perhaps much safer depths. Our crew has mounted this vintage submarine treasure up on a slab of varnished mahogany and fitted it with brass bulkhead mounts. Gauge itself measures 18″ in diameter, with a 4″ valve, entire display including backboard measures 22″. Depth gauge is made of solid brass and still contains all of its parts, making this collectable very heavy. Take a look at the picture taken aboard the WWII USS Pampanito Submarine, docked at the San Francisco Maritime Museum, it depicts an actual gauge almost exactly like this one…We pack and ship world wide…Please click item photographs for better viewing…
