Looks very much like a Kommandohilfegerät 35 (anti-aircraft gun director).
Older style of director used only in a auxiliary capacity. It was paired with but separate to a 4 meter stereoscopic range finder. Operated on angle velocities with the help of friction drives and graphs. I think it's missing a few part though.

Hello

This information is from U.S. document about German equipment

Kommandohilfsgerät 35 = This is a older type of antiaircraft director
used only for auxiliary purposes. It operates on the angular-rate method
of data computation. The 4 meter base range finder used with this instrument
is mounted separately. and gun data providedby the director normally are
transmitted to the guns by telephone. .
