This is a beautifully crafted, quality reproduction of an antique Binnacle Compass.  Originally, these helmet compasses were intended for use on lifeboats. A polished brass case with a round glass window surrounds the Gimbaled Binnacle Compass.  It also features a built-in oil lamp on the side which can illuminate the compass.  An air, or liquid-damped compass card is available for this compass.  Either compass card has a solid brass enclosure and is fully gasketed.  We have improved this compass by fabricating the case using heavy 20-gauge brass.  The compass is fully functional, however, it is not intended for marine navigation.  The compass measures 7 inches (17.8 cm) tall, 9 inches (22.9 cm) wide, the base is 7 1/4 inches (18.4 cm) in diameter, and the compass weighs 3 1/4 pounds (1.5 kg). This regular-sized Binnacle Compass is approximately half the size of the large-sized Binnacle Compass shown below. This compass can be ordered with an inexpensive custom solid brass plaque mounted on the oil lamp enclosure. The air-damped Gimbaled Binnacle Compass sells for $179, and the liquid-damped version is offered for $199.

Gimbaled Helmet Binnacle Compass

These large Binnacle Compasses were originally designed to be the ship's main compass and typically mounted above the ship's wheel.  An internal oil lamp would illuminate the compass at night.  This is a very large, solid brass lightly-distressed reproduction of an antique Binnacle Compass.  It's massive size certainly commands your attention when you see it in a room or on display.  This large Binnacle Compass is approximately twice as large as the regular sized Binnacle Compass shown above and weighs almost four times as much.  Real antique Binnacle Compasses this size usually cost over $3,000.  The Gimbaled Binnacle Compass is enclosed in a heavy polished brass case with a front round glass window.  It can be illuminated with the built-in oil lamp on the right side.  The compass card is air-damped and the brass enclosure is fully gasketed and air tight.  The internal gimbaled compass is 8 inches (20.3 cm) in diameter and the gimbal ring measures 9 1/2 inches (24.1 cm) in diameter.  The compass measures 14 inches (35.6 cm) tall, 16 inches (40.6 cm) wide, the base is 12 inches (30.5 cm) in diameter, and the compass weighs 12 pounds (5.5 kg).
Please check these dimensions before ordering as this is a very large compass, suitable for store and restaurant displays and often too large for an office.  While this compass is fully functional, it is not intended for marine navigation.  This compass can be ordered with an inexpensive custom solid brass plaque mounted on the oil lamp enclosure.
The Gimbaled Binnacle Compass sells for $495.
