This Hampton Nautical Solid Brass Engineering Lensatic Compass is available in a polished brass finish. The compass card has the standard 0 - 360 degree scale, as well as the 0 - 64 Mil scale (one yard at 1,000 yards). The cardinal points are luminous for easy viewing in the dark, and the compass features a standard glass bezel with two lines at 45 degree angles. The bezel also rotates with detents so you can change the heading reference a known amount without looking at the compass. The front sight has a magnifier to simultaneously view the magnetic heading when taking a sight. Folding the sight down operates a needle lift mechanism to protect the compass bearing. On the side of the compass is a needle freeze mechanism to hold a reading.
The lid of the compass has a glass window with a line etched into the glass for use as a rear sight. The outside of the compass has a brass guard to protect the glass. The compass measures 2 1/8 inches (5.4 cm) in diameter, 7/8 inches (2.2 cm) thick, and weighs 4.9 ounces (139 grams). The back of the compass can be custom engraved with a minimum quantity purchase.
A handcrafted 100 percent leather case is included with the compass. The polished brass engineering compass comes with a brown leather case.
