  • 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.
