Us navy 1941 aneroid manometer?

Ive owned it for awhile, its the only war token i have of any family. I got it from my grandfather but i dont really know what it is.

Its labeled on front, us navy bu. nv. Aneroid manometer no.
Taylor instruments rochester new york.

Back is bu ships n 251 and 1941.

I gather its some sort of submarine pressure guage. I always thaught it was a barometer.

So whats the story with these?

Is it U-shaped? Can you post a pic? It sounds interesting.

Its brass and its round like a clock. The numbers go completly around the clock. I would its about 2 maybe 3 inches deep.

Ill see what i can donfor pics. Everything i read online says theyre usually ushaped and measures pressure. Hardly any info.

No, but he was a storekeeper 1st class. It looks like a wall ornament, also has theee mounting holes. It looks to delicate and large to be carried.

The only thing I know them to be used for is to measure pressure.

I can't see the photo well, but the large numbers seem to be from 30? to 39? ONLY?
That would seem to rule out blood pressure...
Are there Smaller Numbers inside the circle of larger numbers?
Is there no indication such as 'psi', anything like that on the face?

The large numbers are 30 in the 12 oclock, 35 in the 6 oclock, 37 at about 9 oclock.

The order of numbers clockwise are: 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37.

Now the 28 starts at around 10 oclock position. The smalle hash marks are marked 1 thru ten. Each one is numbered above the hash. On the dial face i dont see any measurement type markings.

It has two needle like arms. A bigger black one that is attache to the inner mechanics. And a brass one that seems to be set by rotating the dial in the front of the glass.

Google is your friend...

Manometer a device for measuring the pressure of a fluid, consisting of a tube marked with a scale and containing a relatively incompressible fluid, such as mercury. The level of the fluid in the tube varies with the pressure of the fluid being measured. Kinds of manometers are aneroid manometer and sphygmomanometer.
