Features: Brass Gimble Compass 9"

The Hampton Nautical 8" Boxed Compass is a beautiful reproduction of an antique brass British compass in a handsome brass-inlaid hardwood box. The compass is fully gimbaled with a solid brass gimbal set. The compass is available with either an air or liquid-damped compass card. Both have a solid brass enclosure and are fully gasketed. The boxed compass is a beautiful addition to any nautical collection or executive's desk. The front of the felt-lined hardwood case has a brass front clasp and the box's corners are inlaid with solid brass splines.

The case is made out of a high quality smooth finish hardwood. The rosewood box has one clasp and a brass filling of an anchor with rope Hampton Nautical embedded in the top of the box.

Custom Engraving is available on this item with a minimum quantity purchased. Contact us for details.

Research

Authenticity is very important; therefore, every available resource and details to insure that the models are as authentic as possible.

Research on All Handcrafted Ships

Design

After the research is complete, we use the software CAD to draft a 3D image of the ship and a majority of the tiny wood pieces.

Using CAD to draft 3D image of the ship

Component Construction

Only the best quality woods were used to make the different parts of each ship. The wood includes: cherry, birch, maple, blackwood, white lotus, walnut, rosewood, teak, yellow siris and light ebony, and more.

Each piece is made by hand; to reduce the time and cost of making these pieces, the computer is attached to a laser cutter, which cuts the piece perfectly every time.

Assembly

After the completion of all necessary pieces for the ships, the construction process begins. Each stage of the specialized construction process has experts monitoring. This allows the models to be made faster, and still meet the high quality standards.

Assembly of All Model Ships

Inspection

The final stage of the process is inspection. Once a model meets the strict quality standards, then it is made available for sale. For every order placed, it is inspected before shipped.
