This solid brass compass is coated in a bronze antique finish. It was originally used in the British Army in WW1 and WW2. They were standard issue and very compact in size. The compass card is luminous so readings can be easily spotted at night. The glass bezels on these compasses have lines at 45-degree angles. The bezel rotates for different adjustments. A sighting arm folds out and readings are taken with a magnifier. The compass automatically locks when the sighting arm is folded down. This clever mechanism protects the dial and magnetism during transportation. A small knob on the side freezes the compass card for accurate reading. It is 6.5 cm in diameter and 2.5 cm thick, and comes with a wooden box. These compasses are ideal for trekking and walking because of their size and weight.
