As GPS units and other navigation electronics grow in popularity, it is important to remember that nothing is more reliable than a marine compass. Ritchie Navigation designs compasses that deliver superior accuracy, durability, and reliability in rough conditions. Each Ritchie Compass utilizes special Directiveforce Magnets; these magnets are field balanced and matched to each individual compass to provide superior accuracy and smooth, rapid response. If you frequently experience severe conditions, take comfort in knowing that Ritchie Compasses use a Hardened Steel Pivot and Triple Cup Sapphire Jewel Movement to ensure smooth dial operation and fast lock-on.
Different Dial Designs for Ultimate Readability
Ritchie Compasses come in a variety of series that host unique features, but the most important thing to consider is the dial design. You will find all three dial styles that Ritchie Compass offers at Wholesale Marine. Direct-Read Dials are a smart choice for when your compass is positioned at eye-level; they allow you to see the compass heading and lubber line from directly in front. Flat-Card Dials allow you to look down on the compass to see the course heading.
If you find yourself needing to view your compass from both above and in-front, we recommend Ritchie’s Combi-Dials. These dials are a combination of the Direct-Read and Flat-Card designs, incorporating dials that can be read from both above and directly in front of the compass.
