Traveling Sextant with Box
Never get lost again with this Traveling Sextant with Box from Everything Nautical. Crafted from antique finished brass and housed in a hard wood box with brass inlays and latch, this item is a must have for sailors who love the open ocean.
First produced in 1759, this instrument uses a small telescope with two mirrors to allow the user to measure the angle between two far away objects. Sextants are still used on ships today in emergency circumstances and during the harshest of conditions. They were designed with weather and currents in mind, making them not only useful, but, at times, lifesaving.
