This compass I sell for a friend in England, it will be shipped from there. Vintage 1960s-1980s British Royal Navy, SBS Diver's wrist compass (NSN 6605-99-119-9903) plus wooden painted storage box. The compass was issued to Royal Navy Divers and active members of the elite Special Boat Service (SBS) during the late 1970s. It is well designed and was ruggedly made for military underwater use. The compass is used, but is complete, working and in very good condition. There are no cracks or breaks and there is an original black NATO webbing strap that was issued with the compass. The metal swivel housing functions smoothly, although there is a little bit of surface residue, which is to be expected for its age. There is a small air bubble inside the oil filled acrylic dome, but this does not affect the overall appearance or function of the compass. Inside are luminous compass markings (see page section 3-19 from RN Manual B.R.2806 for details). The light blue painted plywood storage box (not lead lined) has corner finger joints and webbing carrying handle. This type of compass was superseded and is now very hard to find, especially in good working condition. Used but good condition: see photo's. Price: €335,- plus shipping.
