Imagine the world before GPS!
Traditionally used to determine one’s latitude by measuring the altitude of a celestial object above the horizon, the sextant could be considered the GPS of the age of nautical travel.
A beautiful antique replica, this intricately detailed pocket sextant is modeled after those used by many Victorian explorers and surveyors and would look at home on any library shelf or make a stylish statement on any desk – a great gift for your favorite nautical buff!
Size: 4 1/4"W x 4 1/4"H x 2 1/4"D.
Note: This historical replica is not manufactured precisely enough to be used for actual nautical navigation. Instructions for using a sextant are NOT included.
