Product Description

This is a DAIKO KEIKI SEISAKUSHO Lifeboat Compass. The reason that this compass is so small is that it was designed to be taken on lifeboats in case of an emergency. When preparing to abandon the boat, the large binnacle with compass can’t be deconstructed. Instead the crew will grab this portable  compass to help the lifeboat find it’s way to safety.

The housing is made out of solid brass. It is in good condition, but you will see that the base on the item is bent (flipped upwards) in some areas.

Attached to the dome you will see a side compartment that has an oil reservoir with wick intact inside.  In the photos, you will see the door off on that compartment but it does easily snap right back on. The compass is liquid filled and functional and gimbals freely. The compass face has the words DAIKO KEIKI SEISAKUSHO Co., LTD and MADE IN JAPAN on it.

This would be a great item to add to your nautical collection!
