Turn heads and spark interest as you steer your way through life, bearing this iconic symbol of navigation on your sleeve.
Designed for celestial navigation in the 18th century, the sextant is both immediately recognisable and hugely intriguing. It was first used by sailors but then adapted for aeronautical use in the 1920s. The name sextant comes from the fact that the design of the instrument is approximately one sixth of a circle. The sextant has come to be a symbol of navigation and of the depth of knowledge and urge to explore that is associated with it. It suggests a questing mind combined with a seriousness of intent.
