Sestrel Hand Bearing Compass

This Sestrel Hand Bearing Compass was made by Henry Browne & Son, Barking & London and is considered to be the finest quality hand bearing compass in the world! It comes with the original wooden case with a clear panel in the front so that the ship's heading can be seen at a glance when the instrument is mounted in fore and aft direction. It also has a mounting bracket. An optical glass prism magnifies the image and allows the user to see both the object being sighted and the compass card bearing at the same time. Land and Sea Collection in Florida is selling a similar one for $795. I'm asking $350, and am a private party in California. Call or text Paul at 760-721-1516 with questions.

Re: Sestrel Hand Bearing Compass

Not to my knowledge, it is an estate piece and the owner was very particular.
