Care & Instructions

Cleaning Method

  • For brass compass care, dust with a soft cloth. Use brass cleaner for tarnish, gently polishing and buffing to shine. Avoid abrasives to prevent scratches.


  • Store your compass in a dry place to prevent corrosion or tarnishing. Brass is resistant to moisture, but prolonged exposure can affect its appearance and the compass's functionality.

Avoiding Chemicals

  • Keep the compass away from harsh chemicals and alcohol, which can damage the brass finish and potentially interfere with the compass's magnetic accuracy.

Note: Given its handcrafted nature, treat your compass with extra care to maintain its craftsmanship and aesthetic appeal.

  • Compasses, including sundials and Brunton compasses, are navigational tools used for orientation, land navigation, and measuring angles of the sun. Sundials track time using the sun's position, while Brunton compasses are favored by geologists for precision in fieldwork.
  • If not collected within 10 days at the nearest delivery hub, Craple reserves the right to modify or cancel the order.

The golden brass finish adds a touch of elegance, while the antique design lends a vintage feel. Measuring 5.12 inches in length, width, and 3.94 inches in height, and weighing 0.88 lbs, this compass is easy to carry around and comes with a beautifully designed wooden box for safekeeping.

Perfect for collectors, outdoor enthusiasts, or anyone who appreciates finely crafted instruments, this compass is a must-have. Its sundial is aligned with the proper latitude angle using a protractor, and true north is determined using a compass and the magnetic north declination of the region. The magnetic compass’s ability to allow the sundial to be pointed North makes the sundial and compass combination very useful.

The device has an integrated fluid level that enables you to perfectly level the sundial by adjusting the three beveled legs. The jeweled bearing of this compass is safeguarded by a needle lock mechanism, which is crucial because the majority of low-end compasses frequently generate inaccurate readings as a result of the needle shifting during movement. The sun’s shadow with the extendable vane casts serves as a visual cue for local time.

Whether you’re looking to add to your nautical or vintage collection, or searching for the perfect gift for a special occasion, this Gilbert & Sons Triangle Sundial Brass Compass with Wooden Box is sure to impress. Don’t miss out on the chance to own a piece of history and a beautiful work of art all in one.
