Wonder, intrigue, curiosity and discovery – qualities that are so often missing from our busy lives.

That was before Authentic Models. They’re interested in appealing to the mind as well as to the eye. Designed to mirror the unique beauty of antique objects and curiosities, Authentic Models’ pieces come across as both functional and decorative, lovingly recreated from materials that don’t break from tradition.

We have China to thank for rescuing us from wandering the high seas listlessly: when the compass was introduced to the West, open-sea navigation became possible, as vessels no longer needed to hug the coastline to know their whereabouts. The Collectors' Compass is based of a design originally crafted for the instrument collection of King George the IV, with all the elegance that befits royalty.

Hand-tooled from brass, the Collectors' Compass features gimball-rings, which help to keep the compass horizontal no matter how unstable the Compass' resting place, thereby making the face readable. This was a fantastic invention back in the days, especially for maritime sailors; these days, it bestows a genuine sense of antiquity upon the Collectors' Compass.

With the Collectors' Compass in your midst, you have the right to call yourself "Capt'n!"

Collectors' Compass features:
  • Designed in the USA.
  • Hand-tooled in admiralty brass.
  • Features gimball-rings to keep the compass horizontal at all times.
  • Design based on a compass created for King George IV.


Dimensions: 20 x 13.5cm.
