This Premium Grade sextant is a beautifully made reproduction of a 6-inch radius British Nautical Sextant.
Each sextant is expertly crafted from solid brass and marked with a unique serial number.
This model is available with either a beautiful polished brass finish or an antique patina.
The sextant has an accurately divided German Silver scale, and a gear driven slow motion control for making small adjustments to the index arm.
A powerful magnifier can be swung into position to assist in reading the vernier scale.
The telescope has polished glass lenses and produces a sharp magnified image.
The mirror mounts are adjustable, and the index mirror has three recessed adjustments.
There are four tinted swing-arm filters:
Two very dark filters for sun shots and two medium blue for moon shots.
On the back of the sextant is a hardwood handle with a thick brass plaque engraved "Stanley London 1885"
and the unique serial number.
The sextant measures 7 5/8 inches tall (19.4 cm) tall, 8 3/8 inches (21.3 cm) wide,
3 3/4 inches (9.5 cm) deep, and weighs almost 2.5 pounds (1.14 kg).
The antique patina sextant comes complete with a handmade, thick, distressed leather case, so the sextant and case look like a 100-year old antique.
While this sextant is fully functional with properly aligned optics, it has not been calibrated and is not intended for navigation.
However, it is perfect for the collector or nautical enthusiast interested in learning celestial navigation.
The sextant can be paired with a beautiful felt-lined hardwood case with an inlaid brass oval marked
"Nautical Sextant, Stanley London, 1920."
The case has two front clasps and a brass handle, and the corners are inlaid with splines.
The optional hardwood case can be fitted with a custom engraved brass plaque either on the
outside of the case, on the inside lid, or both.
We also have a smaller version of this sextant, a
similar premium grade sextant with hardwood case, and a
different less expensive 6-inch radius sextant with hardwood case.
The Antique Premium 6-inch Brass Sextant with Leather Case sells for only $195.
The optional Hardwood Case sells for just $25.00.
