1614352790Code 6871 Sestrel compassMagnetic compass on universal joint in its original wooden box with slot lid, produced by Sestrel in the early 1900s. The compass consists of a cylindrical vessel of brass and bronze, called a mortar, on the bottom of which is fixed a hard metal stem, called a sensitive element, on which the compass card rests so that zero coincides with the magnetic polarity . To minimize friction, the mortar is filled with liquid with a low freezing point, also having the purpose of quickly dampening any oscillations of the complex and closed at the top by a sturdy protective glass. Excellent condition, fully functional. Box size 20x20x13 cm - 7.87x7.87x5.11 inches, compass diameter 13 cm - 5.11 inches.

Sestrel is a trade mark of Henry Browne & son, an important English firm maker quality compasses, inclinometers, sextants, etc. established in the second half of XIX century.

The brand ‘Sestrel’ was an amalgam of the qualities their instruments embody: SEnsitive –STeady – RELiable.
Sestrel is in fact a name synonymous with quality and accuracy; this is evidenced by the sheer number of vintage and antique instruments still in use today.
