We've carried many sextant replicas over the years and this is one of our finest---especially for the price. It looks like a real antique that costs many hundreds of dollars, with a heft not usually found on modern pieces, with authentic looking antiqued brushed brass patina and age marks. Like the originals, which were used to navigate by the stars during long ocean journeys, these have all the working parts. But we don't recommend using ours to sail to Hawaii, as it's designed only to be cool nautical decor. We've paired it with a personalized three dimensional US Coast Guard medallion to make the perfect gift. As sailors have for centuries used sextants to navigate uncharted destinations, the symbolism of a sextant for a new graduate or a recent promotion is perfect. The heavy brass medallion features bold enameled colors applied by hand in Wisconsin, and an outer brass disc professionally engraved in North Carolina with up to 60 characters of your choice.
