Sextants
All of our sextants have precision calibration markings and working sight-glasses and come in a decorative oak or mahogany wood box with in-laid brass nautical decorations. The sextant was the primary instrument used for navigation at sea for hundreds of years. Without the invention and use of this instrument none of our ancestors would have been able to travel and find the "New World" and therefore none of us would be here in the Americas.  We also try to include a set of simple instructions with every sextant order entitled "How to Use a Sextant" that gives basic sextant operation and instructions. You may also download these instructions by clicking Here.  See notes at bottom of this page.

Sextant Notes:  All of our sextants are hand-machined in India by skilled craftsmen.  Therefore they all have slight imperfections in the form of slight scratches, tiny holes and nicks in the brass and aluminum.  However, this in no way reduces the use or measuring capability of the instruments.  One must take into consideration that these instruments are NOT stamped out of a factory. They bear the mark of being hand machined and assembled.  Also, we have prepared instructions entitled "How to Use a Sextant" that you are free to download and print out.
