The Stanley London® Solid Brass Open Face Mariner's Compass with Beveled Glass is a solid brass reproduction of an antique open face pocket compass.  This Compass is featured in the tutorial "Determining your Position with a Dial Pocket Compass and a Map."  The Mariner's Compass is an air-damped compass with a large, freely rotating compass card that settles quickly on North.  Black print against the bold yellow compass face allows for a quick and accurate reading.  The card is marked with the traditional cardinal and ordinal directions, as well as the 360-degree system widely used by civilian navigators today;  North at 0° = 360°, South at 180°, East at 90°, and West at 270°.  The names of the cardinal and ordinal directions are derived from the English language but their initials, N, S, E, and W are internationally known.  The Open Face Mariner's Compass substitutes the West point with an O, an abbreviation for the Latin term Occidens, to fall or set, as in the sun.  A feathered arrow at 345° marks true north and depicts the angular difference between true north and magnetic north, known as variation.  True north refers to the geographic location of the North Pole while magnetic north is the direction toward which the north pole of an object will point.
The compass card is protected by a beveled glass cover whose prism diffracts light to create an elegant spectrum of colors.  The top of the solid brass compass housing features a knurled periphery and a sturdy fob so that a compass chain may be attached.
The compass measures 2 5/16 inches (58 mm) in diameter, and is 7/16 inch (11 mm) thick.  This antique reproduction is polished to a beautiful high luster and weighs 2.3 ounces (65 grams).  The brushed finish back of the compass is blank and can be custom engraved with a personalized message of up to 25 words.
The Stanley London Solid Brass Open Face Mariner's Compass with Beveled Glass sells for $27.50. 
An optional red or black velvet draw string bag is available for an additional $1.50.  We offer two solid brass pocket compass chains as an option for your compass.  These chains are specially made to be non-magnetic and will not affect the accuracy of your compass.  Both have a clasp on one end that attaches to the fob on the pocket compass, and the other end can be attached to your pocket, belt, or button hole.  The Gold Plated Light Pocket Compass Chain is 14 3/4 inches (37.5 cm) overall, weighs 0.5 ounces (14 grams), and costs $9.40.  The Gold Plated Heavy Pocket Compass Chain has larger links and is 14 inches (35.5 cm) overall, weighs 1.1 ounces (31 grams), and costs $10.50.
The Small Hardwood Box with Inlaid Compass Rose is available for an additional $30.95.
We also offer less expensive Open Face Pocket Compasses, a Pocket Watch Style Compass, a World War I Pocket Compass, and a Small Polished Brass Open Faced Pocket Compass with Copper Compass Rose.
