Popular for a number of years now, it's an outstanding hand bearing compass which is very well designed to sit neatly in the hand. Its armoured casing means you'll have to go some way to damage this marine compass. And even though the casing may look hard, it isn't - it feels soft in the hand and won't slip when wet. Where there might be fading light or darkness, there's built-in photo-luminescent lighting to help you view the digits with ease. The card has one-degree graduations. A prism projects the reading of the bearing to infinity. This also makes for easy reading of the card, as you do not need to alternate close-reading to read the card and infinite-reading to take bearings.


Built-in photoluminescent lighting, completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, operates without batteries or radio-active tritium. Course reading from above the compass you can read your compass like a standard compass, with no need to look through the prism.

Outstanding legibility of the card, with one-degree graduations.


No parallax error: a prism projects the reading of the bearing to infinity. This also contributes to a more comfortable operation, as you do not need to alternate close-reading to read the card and infinite-reading to take bearings.


Optimum conditions to take bearings, thanks to the superb card stability and the wide 20 field of view, which will accommodate the roughest sea conditions.


Most accurate bearing: the pivot and very hard stone are a guarantee of long life and shock resistance of your compass.


Soft bottom cell: engineered using ultrasonic welding, it acts like an expansion diaphragm, preventing the formation of bubbles and leaks.


Built-in photoluminescent lighting, completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, operates without batteries or radio-active tritium.


Course reading from above the compass: you can read your compass like a standard compass, with no need to look through the prism.
