This is a RARE piece and in quite nice condition. It is an original Air Forces issue Pocket Type Compass Assembly made by the Longines Wittinauer Watch company. It comes in its little soft carry bag and in the original box. Also, t is a VERY VINTAGE Christmas gift tag that was in the box. The box is marked "Compass Assembly Pocket Type Air forces Order No. 535 - AC - 27707 Mfr's Assy Dwg 1941 Longines-Wittinauer Watch Co., Inc.". The gift tag is marked "Greetings: To a Sportsman from Mother". The actual compass is stamped on the front "U.S.". What would normally be a winding stem releases the cover. Inside, the compass is marked "Wittinauer" and of coarse has all the degree readings and compass points. The watch type case is just over 1-3/4 inches in diameter. Compass weighs 1.7 ounces. It has a kind of gold tone finish. T is some light wear on the back. I have included plenty of photos for you to appreciate. This is a great find for the watch, compass, or military collector!
