An essential piece for navigating and observing! This wrist compass was made by Kadlec in Prague and introduced in 1939 to the Luftwaffe. It is made of clear and black bakelite with blackened leather wrist straps along with brass and alloy fittings. The liquid inside is petroleum (kerosene) and can be exchanged or refilled upon inspection. The obverse features the red sighting aids. The reverse slide works well. The back is marked "AK-39" (Armkompass 1939) along with the register number "FL23235-1". The leather is in wonderful condition. Overall it's a great piece!see page 402 of "Military Timepieces" by Konrad Knirim. This example is unissued and comes in it's factory box.
