Luftwaffe Armbandkompass Model AK-39

This example is the first pattern and is complete with original wrist strap. The bezel rotates and has the correct size air bubble in the oil. It is fully stamped on the reverse with manufacturer's detail and Luftwaffe FL Nos. 23235. These compasses were issued to German air crew to aid escape if forced down in enemy territory. This example has been used post war by a Royal Navy helicopter pilot! Now sold as a collector's item, but we are assured it still works as intended.
