For use on all types of boats and water craft. 

The Iris 50 compass is clear evidence that a sturdy marine compass no longer needs to look austere.


Hand compasses specifically designed to take accurate bearings comfortably, whatever the type of navigation and the weather conditions.

Card stability : the magnetic cell has been specially engineered to guarantee optimum reading. The card remains stable whatever the yachtsman's position and remains non affected by the heeling ange of the sail boat or the shocks and vibrations of the power boat.
Card graduation : every 1° on Iris 50 ;

Lubber lines : contribute to an easier reading and avoid parallax errors.
The expansion diaphragm prevents the formation of bubbles, and guarantees the optimum performance of Iris compasses, regardless of temperature and air pressure fluctuations.
Ergonomic handling.
Innovative design and choice of vibrant colors : a hand bearing often becomes a personal object, so it might as well be elegant !

Hand bearing compasses intended for use on all types of boats : dinghies, racing boats, cruisers, pneumatic boats, power day-boats, fast power crafts and power cruisers.


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.
