Good protection against hard knocks;

The smooth finish feels soft in your hand, and it will not slip, even if it is wet.
Outstanding legibility of the card, with one-degree graduations.
No parallax error: a prism projects the reading of the bearing to infinity. This also contributes to a more comfortable operation, as you do not need to alternate close-reading to read the card and infinite-reading to take bearings.
Optimum conditions to take bearings: thanks to the superb card stability and the wide 20° field of view, which will accommodate the roughest sea conditions.
Most accurate bearing: the pivot and very hard stone are a guarantee of long life and shock resistance of your compass.
Soft bottom cell: engineered using ultra-sonic welding, it acts like an expansion diaphragm, preventing the formation of bubbles and leaks.
Built-in tritium illumination completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, operates without batteries and a service life of more than 15 years

Course reading from above the compass: one can read your compass like a standard compass, with no need to look through the prism. 


Betalights provide the compass with a continuous and secure light source that preserves night-vision and enables readings to be taken quickly in partial and total darkness. Parallax errors are eliminated by a prism that projects the reading of the bearing to infinity. A wide 20° field of view ensures optimised conditions for taking bearings and red lubber lines make reading quick and easy. The compass is supported by a 5 year warranty.


Illumination of the compass is self-powered, requiring no batteries, bulbs, switches or secondary light source. They are rated for operation in temperatures ranging from -20° to 60° and underwater to a depth of 50m. Note: compasses are calibrated for use in the Northern Hemisphere as standard.



Illumination is provided by Betalights® fixed securely within the unit. SRB Technologies is the original developer of Betalights®, innovative technology that uses gaseous tritium activation of phosphor within a sealed glass tube to produce light. Betalights® are self-powered, providing an absolutely reliable light source throughout their service life of 10 years. They contain no moving parts and are maintenance-free.


It is the buyers responsibility to comply with the local regulations.
