Stanley London® Brass World War I
Pocket Compass Reproduction
with Hardwood Gift Box
Gold Plated Chain $9.40 - $10.50
This is a beautiful and accurate Stanley London® reproduction of the famous pocket compass used by U.S. Forces in World War I and II.
These compasses use standard hunter pocket watch cases and were made by Longines-Wittnauer, Kueffel & Esser, Waltham Watch Company, Taylor, and others nearly 100 years ago.
Pressing the button on the fob causes the spring-loaded lid to automatically open.
The case is solid brass and the compass needle is accurate, quick and responsive.
Closing the lid operates a needle lift mechanism that protects the compass bearing while transporting the compass.
The compass needle is free to rotate under a convex glass crystal whenever the lid is open.
The compass measures 1.8 inches (4.54 cm) in diameter, .54 inches (1.37 cm) thick, and weighs 2.2 ounces (62.4 grams).
Both sides of the compass are blank and can be custom engraved with initials, a monogram, or up to 18 words of your personalized inscription.
Sorry, the inside lid cannot be engraved.
The pocket compass comes complete with a beautiful hand rubbed solid hardwood gift box.
The interior of the hardwood case is felt lined and the top of the case has a solid brass inlaid badge.
The hardwood case cannot be custom engraved, but custom brass inlaid badges are available with 250 piece minimum purchase.
We offer two solid brass pocket compass chains as an option for your compass.
These chains are specially made to be non-magnetic and will not effect the accuracy of your compass.
Each has a clasp on one end that attaches to the fob on the pocket compass, and the other end can be attached to your pocket, belt, or button hole.
There are two different gold plated chains designed to compliment a polished brass pocket compass.
The Gold Plated Light Pocket Compass Chain is 14 3/4 inches (37.5 cm) overall, weighs 0.5 ounces (14 grams), and costs $9.40.
The Gold Plated Heavy Pocket Compass Chain has larger links and is 14 inches (35.5 cm) overall, weighs 1.1 ounces (31 grams), and costs $10.50.
