Nautical Sextant

Make a nautical decor statement at your home with this wonderfully decorative and designed range of Nautical Sextant available at very lowest prices. This formidable piece of ironmongery has derived its name from the bottom arc that is one sixth of a circle. A sextant is a doubly shimmering navigation instrument designed to measure the angle between two visible objects. It was first implemented by John Hadley and Thomas Godfrey in 1730, but also found afterwards in the unpublished writings of Isaac Newton. The angle measured along with the time in which it was measured is used to recognize the position of the user on the map of the world. Hence, it is basically a navigational tool used by seaman and other travelers over the years. This excellently designed range is available in excellent condition that makes it also ideal for gifting option.
