The Swiss tradition of accuracy is not a legend, it’s a fact. The reputation of Recta has been built around the skills required to design manufacture precision instruments for use around the world.
Recta compasses include a basic starter model and one designed specifically for the scouting fraternity.
Recta designed the first compass in a pocket watch housing almost exactly 100 years ago.
Their name has been built around the skills required to manufacture precision instruments used throughout the world by the armed forces, scouting organisations, backpackers and outdoor lovers in general.
Recta’s ‘liquid filled matchbox’ model, developed in 1941 for the Swiss Army, is still in use today, beloved by orienteering enthusiasts everywhere.
More than a century of heritage and history now embraces the very latest in state-of-the art technology, and the company’s reputation for accuracy is combined with innovative projects to ensure the constant development of a new generation of outdoor instruments.
