Sighting through the Wndsn Angular Size pendant.

Draw knowledge from centuries past, and pass on as heirloom to future generations.

Introducing the next product in our line of metrology tools, the Wndsn XPD Angular Size Pendant revives ancient technologies in a low tech, high value instrument.

Inspired by the medieval Kamal, a celestial navigation tool that greatly facilitated latitude sailing, the Wndsn XPD Angular Size Pendant fixates the distance to the measuring scale by way of creating a necklace that is holding the scales at a set distance, thus enabling accurate measurements.

The scales on the pendant are calculated in a way that enables the user to measure one-handed, no further setup required other than wearing the pendant around their neck. The pendant subtends angular sizes of up to 13° with a precision of 0.2° or 12 arcminutes.

The slightly larger than dog tag-sized angular size brass pendant is handmade and manufactured in the spirit of astronomical instruments of the age of discovery, built by the likes of Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, and Gemma Frisius. The scales are precision-cut into 3 mm thick rigid metal. The Wndsn maker's mark proudly adorns the device; scientific instructions in reminiscence of the spacecraft’s Voyager Golden record are engraved and supplemented by a printed how-to. Made in Germany.

The Wndsn XPD mission encompasses arcane science and cross-disciplinary exploration in the spirit of the age of discovery. Wndsn XPD stands for adventure, overcoming natural and man-made challenges, promoting self-reliance and mindfulness. Wndsn XPD develops and /or manufactures custom-built navigation instruments, multi-purpose tools, metrology & illumination solutions, expedition mementos, and morale patches; applying existing empirical knowledge to develop essential tools and techniques to fully experience contemporary adventures. The Wndsn XPD design philosophy strives to create accurate and meaningful, non-arbitrary designs inspired by Bauhaus architecture, obsessive about achieving non-random, iconic, strong geometric compositions. The guiding principle is to define a distinct visual language with a diverse vocabulary and grammar, across materials, media, and tools embracing simplicity, precision, clarity, and boldness. Intended function and materials dictate shape and form.
