1800's Royal Naval 'Officer of the Watch' Single Drawer Leather Covered Telescope by James Morton, Sunderland. Sn 13566 - 13566

1800's Royal Naval 'Officer of the Watch' single drawer telescope by James Morton, Villiers Street South, Sunderland. Watch standing, or watch keeping, in nautical terms concerns the division of qualified personnel to operate a ship continuously. On a typical sea-faring naval vessel, personnel keep watch on the bridge and over the running machinery. The generic bridge watch standers are a lookout and an officer or mate who is responsible for the safe navigation of the ship. Safe navigation means keeping the vessel on course and away from dangers as well as collision avoidance from other shipping. This is a very nice leather covered single drawer telescope. The optics are clear and free of cracks, chips or damage. the eyepiece lenses has a brass 'eyelid' cover which slides smoothly as it should to protect the eyepiece. The telescope measures 24 1/4" closed and 31 1/4" extended. The single drawer is brass and stamped with "James Morton Ltd. Sunderland". The leather cover is stitched down a seam and secure and tight. The telescope is in very good condition. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13566
