Precision Weather Instruments & Timepieces
From compasses to hygrometers and thermometers, humanity has been measuring and navigating with analog instruments like these for 2,000 years or more. We think the benefits are obvious: they’re accurate, they never need new batteries, and in terms of appearance, there’s simply no comparison with their digital counterparts. Whether you’re adventuring on a long-range hike or just showing the grandkids how things were done before everything was an app, these timeless instruments have undeniable appeal.
Thermometers, Hygrometers, Unique Compasses & More
It’s an indelible image: the explorer, the outdoorsman, the ship’s captain, gazing down at the trusty glass and metal weather instrument. His one true guide, his north star when the real stars aren’t visible. A classic magnetic compass is equally functional and pleasing as a decorative object, and we offer them in makes and sizes ideal for both purposes. Not planning on any adventures? Our analog climate meters combine thermometers and hygrometers and can provide accurate temperature and humidity readings at a glance, utilizing designs that range from the practical to downright artistic. These dependable tools represent the best of old-school technology that never loses its charm (and never needs a charge).
