One of our nautical sextants makes a great dinner-party conversation starter. The sextant is a “doubly reflecting navigation instrument that works by measuring the angular distance between two visible objects”. It derives its name from the shape of its frame which, traditionally, is one-sixth of a circle, or in Latin, sextantis/sextãns. Isaac Newton had explored its principles back around the turn of the 17th century.
All our sextants are beautifully handcrafted and are presented in a custom-made wooden box. They make a wonderful gift for anyone that has an interest in the history of navigation, in old-school exploration and discovery, or in applied mathematics. Or for someone who simply appreciates having intriguing antique-inspired pieces in their collection.
