Details

The Polaris Compass by Authentic Models is antique science and history captured in vintage-style aged brass. An exact replica of an early travellers' compass, it is the perfect gift for lovers of nautical, scientific or technological history.

Exploration and Innovation

Set sail for the celebrated Spice Islands, renowned Cathay, or even the elusive South Lands with the instrument of exploration that allowed sailers to cross vast seas, and explorers to discover entirely new continents. Through centuries of technological innovation, sailers managed to chart the entire globe. By inventing a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth's magnetic North, 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could suddenly cross oceans. The compass truly was the implement that changed the Renaissance world, forever...

Brand New World

The Age of Sail allowed exploration and navigation to become possible; opening up the world for trade and cultural exchange. Early explorers setting out didn't know where they were headed. Guided only by the stars at night and a simple compass, they set out on their voyages of discovery.
