The Iris 50 is a universal compass specifically designed to take accurate bearings comfortably, whatever the type of navigation and the weather conditions. The Iris 50 compass is clear evidence that a sturdy marine compass no longer needs to look austere.

The Iris 50 hand bearing compass is 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
  • 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.

  • Graduation : every 1
  • Field of view : 20
