PLASTIMO COMPASSES - Iris 50 - Overview

Hand bearing compasses intended for use on all types of boats : dinghies, racing boats, cruisers, pneumatic boats, power day-boats, fast power crafts and power cruisers.

Iris 50 Compass is clear evidence that a sturdy marine compass no longer needs to look austere.


- Good protection against hard knocks ; the 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.
