WW2 compass

Great addition in Ralf’s collection: a WW2 compass, probably made by Panerai. This type of compass is visible on photos taken during the war and it is a similar version of the small compass which we have published here.

It is interesting to see the strong lugs, which are similar to the compasses made in the 1950s and 1960s by Panerai, which have a bigger case. Remarkable is also the black coating of the case.

The position of the six screws on the backside and also the screw on the plexi dome are similar constructed as on the small Panerai compass linked above, which has thinner and flexible lugs.
