A perfect gift or great for leaving on display in your home, holiday house or boat. Sextants also make great talking points!

This sextant is fully functional but not calibrated for marine use. We do stock and sell calibrated German sextants - please view my other listings.


Sextants have been used by mariners throughout history to determine their location on a map. The sextant does this by measuring the angle between two visible objects at a given time. Using this information the user can determine their latitude.
