Handbearing and traditional compass
Good protection against hard knocks : the smooth finish feels soft in your hand, and it will not slip, even if it is wet.
Outstanding legibility of the card, with one-degree graduations.
No parallax error : a prism projects the reading of the bearing to infinity. This also contributes to a more comfortable operation, as you do not need to alternate close-reading to read the card and infinite-reading to take bearings.
Optimum conditions to take bearings, thanks to the superb card stability and the wide 20° field of view, which will accommodate the roughest sea conditions.
Most accurate bearing : the pivot and very hard stone are a guarantee of long life and shock resistance of your compass.

Soft bottom cell : engineered using ultra-sonic welding, it acts like an expansion diaphragm, preventing the formation of bubbles and leaks.
Built-in photoluminescent lighting, completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, operates without batteries or radio-active tritium.

Course reading from above the compass : you can read your compass like a standard compass, with no need to look through the prism.

Military and field compass applications : Army green (ref. 63873) and Sand (63603) models are available on special request with MILS graduation. 

Graduation in MILS + MILS :
. Direct reading every 400 MIL
. Reading through prism every 200 MIL.

Built-in photoluminescent lighting, completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, operates without batteries or radio-active tritium.

In the press:

"This is the Plastimo classic and still scores highest in our test. It's simple, robust and well designed, with everything encased in rubber, except for the lens and the top of the card. (...). The acrylic lens gives the clearest and most accurate read-out, while its position on top of the compass allows you to line up the bold red lubber line directly against the landmark you're taking a bearing on. Stows away easily thanks to its lightweight and small size."
