Premium Quality Antique Reproduction
Vernier Readout Serialized
British Captain's Brass Sextant
with Hardwood Case
This Stanley London® premium quality Captain's sextant is a beautiful
full-scale reproduction of the British Captain's 6-inch radius vernier
readout brass nautical sextant.
Each sextant is expertly crafted from solid brass and marked with a unique serial number.
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 sextant's telescope has polished glass lenses and produces a sharp magnified image.
The index mirror has three recessed adjustments.
There are six tinted swing-arm filters with heavy brass filter mounts.
On the back of the sextant is a hardwood handle with a thick brass plaque engraved "Stanley London 1920"
and the unique serial number.
The hardwood case can be fitted with a custom engraved brass plaque either on the
outside of the case, on the inside lid, or both.
The sextant comes 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 sextant is 8 inches (20.3 cm) tall, 8 1/4 inches (21.0 cm) wide, and
4 1/4 inches (10.8 cm) deep.
The sextant weighs 3 1/2 pounds (1.6 kg), the felt lined hardwood case weighs
3 pounds (1.4 kg).
While this sextant is fully functional, it does not come with a certificate of calibration
and is not intended for navigation.
We also offer a similar 6-inch radius antique patina sextant with hardwood case,
as well as a Premium Grade 6-inch serialized brass sextant with leather case.
The Premium Quality British Captain's Brass Sextant with Hardwood Case sells for only $220.
