Kriegsmarine Compass by Askania Werke A.G. Berlin - Click for the bigger picture

Kriegsmarine Compass by Askania Werke A.G. Berlin

Askania were established in 1938 and manufactured for both the German navy and Luftwaffe. An excellent example, either from a small craft or perhaps as an auxiliary back up compass in case the main unit failed. Nicely marked on the bezel with a Kriegsmarine property mark and numbered M3167. The compass card and oil are very clear with just a small air bubble visible under the glass. The compass bowl appears to be made from Bakelite and incorporates brass lugs for gimble mounting. Diameter 5.5"(14 cm).
