..... Nikon Optical was founded sometime in 1908, had been supplying Binocular to the Japanese Imperial Navy and was the original lens supplier to Kwanon (Canon) until 1948.

In the navy vein, I also saw in the submarine museum at Kure (out from Hiroshima) that Nikon supplied periscopes for WW2 and later submarines of the Japanese navy.

A post WW2 periscope.....

A closer look at its label.....

Made in 1984 no less.
