The Authentic Models Tradewinds Compass is antique science and history captured in vintage-style aged brass. It is a replica of a small Georgian-era combination sundial and compass, with a brass lid to protect the convex glass cover. This is the perfect gift for lovers of nautical, scientific or technological history.
Exploration and Innovation
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 vast oceans. Set sail for the fabled Spice Islands, legendary Cathay, or even the rumoured South Lands with the instrument of exploration that allowed sailers to cross the seven seas, and explorers to discover entirely new continents. The compass truly was the implement that changed the Renaissance world, forever...
Brand New World
The Age of Sail allowed exploration to become possible; opening up the world for trade, travel and cultural exchange. Early navigators and explorers setting out didn't necessarily know where they were headed. Guided only by the stars of the night sky and a simple compass, they set out on their voyages of discovery.
