Luminescent markings are visible when other tools are not. In dark conditions, the intensity of the green glow emitted by the dial and needle marker lasts longer than expected thanks to the innovative material with which they are composed. In daylight, these display elements also have a brighter hue. Go where others can't.
If you're lost at sea, a tiny magnet might be your best hope of finding your way. That's what makes a compass point north — its magnetic pin. The pin is balanced so that it can rotate freely inside its casing and react to the magnetism of our planet.

Compasses are among the oldest tools in the history of sailing and exploration. Once mankind started to learn more about navigation, they have been vital to important features like the first transoceanic journeys and the globe's circumnavigation.
Early explorers were required to navigate using local landmarks and the stars. That made traveling to far-off or unknown locations very difficult. Compasses were one of the key breakthroughs making these journeys a possibility.
The first compasses were made in Asia (20 BC - 20 AD) using lodestone, a naturally magnetized stone of iron. Compasses of iron needles were produced later, magnetized by being struck with a lodestone.
The English theologian Alexander Neckam mentioned magnetized needles and compasses in medieval Europe around 1157–1217 AD while dry compasses started to appear in Medieval Europe and the Medieval Islamic world In 1300. This was replaced by the liquid-filled magnetic compass in the early 20th century.
With our design roots in Boston, our company draws creative inspiration from the hub of America’s rich nautical history. In developing our product, our original prototypes and inspiration came from the old shipyards of East Boston.
The nautically-inspired Sailor's Compass harkens back to a time of adventure on open seas, its durability a testament to the harsh demands of that bygone era. Our hardware is tied to the art and science of sailing and exploration. We’ve spent five months refining the Sailor's Compass into its final, perfectly balanced form.
