Stanley London® Premium Sextant 3-inch Miniature Brass Sextant with Leather Case
This Stanley London® premium 3-inch (7.5 cm) radius sextant is our finest miniature brass sextant.
The sextant is a reproduction of a small lifeboat sextant used in emergencies for navigation.
Despite it's small size, it is meticulously crafted and fairly accurate.
The sextant measures 4 3/16 inches (10.6 cm) tall, 3 7/8 inches (9.8 cm) wide, 2 1/4
inches (5.7 cm) deep, and weighs 11.8 ounces (335 grams) which is 44% heavier than our other 3-inch sextant.
It has a gear-driven adjustment of the elevation angle, and a built-in powerful magnifier
that can be swung into position to assist in reading the vernier scale.
The telescope can be extended to focus and produces a clear and bright magnified image.
There are four dark swing-arm filters, and the back of the sextant's limb is engraved "Stanley London 1880."
While this sextant is fully functional, it is not calibrated nor intended for navigation.
This sextant is available in both a beautiful polished brass finish, as well as an antique patina.
Either version comes complete with a heavy 100% leather case embossed "Stanley London" and a rear
We also offer a larger version of this sextant.
The 3-inch premium quality brass sextant in either polished or antique finish with
leather case is on sale for only $109.
We also offer a similar sextant mounted on a hardwood plaque.
