Stanley London® 6-inch Serialized Premium Grade Brass Sextant with Leather Case.
Available in Polished Brass or Antique Patina
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 sextant comes complete with a thick 100 percent leather handmade case embossed "Stanley London."
The antique patina model comes with a distressed leather case, so the sextant and case to look like a 100-year old antique.
While these sextants are fully functional with properly aligned optics, they have not been calibrated and are not intended for navigation.
They are perfect for the collector or nautical enthusiast interested in learning celestial navigation.
We also offer 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.
Either the polished or antique version of the Premium Grade 6-inch serialized brass sextant with
leather case sells for only $195.
