Authentic Models® WWII Compass

The compass opened the world to exploration and discovery. Invented in China thousands of years ago, it was primarily used by feng shui priests, hired to advise on how and where to build. Today the compass is still a basic tool, a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at Earth's magnetic North. 16th Century sailors, accustomed to following coastlines, could suddenly cross oceans. With this invaluable navigation tool, sailors could devise a compass course, while still using their age-old knowledge of steering by fixed stars, ocean currents and prevailing winds to establish position. W: 2.2", L: 2.2", H: .8"
