C.Plath-Compasse

Cplath Hamburg Compasses

Ever since the days of Carl Plath the manufacturing of a C.Plath magnetic compass is an art which requires – apart from best materials a high degree of craftsmanship, know-how, experience and fingertip feeling. After all our magnetic compass is – due to its traditionally laborious production – up to this day the reliable centrepiece of the navigation on board.

The demands a compass is exposed to as years go by are extremely large. They are the reason why C.Plath compasses have been designed. Since they are tuned optimally they defy strong vibrations, heat and humidity. Even in rough sea they offer highest functionality for your safety.
