Compasses, Sextants & Telescopes

If you have got navigational problems, then we have the compasses, sextants, and telescopes to ensure that you will never again have problems finding where you are or where you need to be! But in all seriousness, we carry some particularly fine specimens as far as our nautical navigational equipment goes. If directional navigation eludes you, then perhaps you need one of our many fine compasses. Each one is masterfully crafted from quality metals, and, more importantly, each one is fully functional, ensuring that never again will the cardinal directions confound you. If you are a fan of celestial navigation, we have a number of functioning sextants, many of which are also made from brass, although in no way do we actually recommend you depend on our sextants for actual navigation. They are replicas, and while they function, they are not properly calibrated for actual use. And, of course, we have telescopes. We have a wide variety of optical devices, so if you want some awesome hand-held spyglasses, we have those as well in a variety of sizes and colors. We also carry full-sized telescopes made from solid brass. Oh, and our spyglasses and telescopes? They are all fully functioning too, so even if you do not plan on using yours any time soon, you can still pick it up and use it at a later date. If you are interested in a different sort of nautical decor, maybe you should consider looking through our compasses, sextants, and telescopes. Not only are they all top quality, but many of them are still fully functional, which makes them more than just nautical decor and accessories.
