Compass Identification Assistance

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks:

 

I just picked this compass up but I don't know what it's for or what it goes to...I purchased this in a military thrift store. It is marked "MADE IN GERMANY" on the dial/face. It's a "floating" compass and you can see the degrees on the side....but I don't know anything about it. On the back it is marked "7.7."

 

Any help would be appreciated Thanks,

The dial on the face rotates.....so you can align it.......but would this go in a vehicle, watercraft, or aircraft....I just don't know. Would it set inside something or ??

I could be wrong but it looks very similar to a scuba compass. This would normally have a rubber boot with a cut-out that would allow the user to view the side reading function.
