A very good example of a vintage Silva 'Globe Trotter' wrist compass, dating from the mid 20th century, and probably made in the 1950's or 1960's. Made in Sweden, this type of compass was often issued to military personnel. It is a liquid filled design, with a rotating aluminium bezel. The compass has an aluminium case and red/white needle with a luminous north marker. The leather strap is extra long (30cm), intended to be worn over military or mountaineering winter clothing.
The compass is in good condition, ful working order, and finds North very well. The bezel rotates smoothly. The leather strap is in good condition, with general signs of age and use.
Dimensions : 50mm diameter (strap: 300mm)
