Product Description

The C-Plath Merkur SE Compass is U.S. Coast Guard approved for use on lifeboats. It can be flush mounted and can withstand extreme weather conditions. The black housing of the compass is seawater resistant and made of a light alloy. The super-strong glass dome is insensitive to ultraviolet rays and is guaranteed for life against cracking, crazing, and yellowing under normal use. This  exceptional compass is manufactured by C. Plath in Germany and features a full spherical construction with an internal gimbal system, which accommodates all angles of heel without compromising accuracy. The oscillation-free double bottom compensates for volumetric changes. The accuracy of indication, lag error, and oscillation period all exceed the International Organization of Standards norm. Additionally, the compass vibration resistance exceeds requirements of BSH (German Hydrographic Institute).
