Full Description:
This Stanley London® 6-inch radius Antique Finish Brass Sextant is a beautiful full-scale reproduction of the British 6-inch radius vernier readout brass nautical sextant.  Each sextant is expertly crafted from solid brass and an antique patina is applied so it looks like a 115-year old antique.  If you plan on handling the sextant much, you'll really appreciate how the antique finish does not show fingerprints or require polishing.  The frame of each sextant is 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 non-inverted image.  There are six dark tinted swing-arm filters with heavy brass filter mounts.  On the back of the sextant is a comfortable brass handle.

The sextant comes with a beautiful felt-lined solid hardwood case with a solid brass plaque engraved "Stanley London."  The case has two front clasps and a brass handle, and the corner joints are strengthened with beautiful inlaid hardwood splines.  This hardwood case can be fitted with a custom brass plaque either on the outside of the case in place of the Stanley London plaque, on the front, or on the inside lid.  The sextant is 7 5/8 inches (19.4 cm) tall, 8 3/8 inches (21.3 cm) wide, and 3 3/8 inches (8.6 cm) deep.  The sextant weighs 2 pounds, 6 ounces (1.08 kg), the felt lined hardwood case weighs an additional 2 pounds, 8 ounces (1.14 kg).  While this sextant is fully functional, it does not come with a certificate of calibration and is not intended for navigation.
