When we get someone on line who can help with reading the Japanese , I think you will find this is a WWII Japanese aircraft sextant used to plot your location while over water , etc. It worked much the same way a shipboard sextants were used for many years.

Bubble Sextant. There is a date of March 19, 1945 on one of the labels.
