A Superb, Genuine Ww1 Pair - A Wrist Compass And A Large Trench Watch - 2 Items:
A superb, genuine WW1 pair - a Wrist Compass and a large Trench Watch - 2 items of around the same vintage
1. A good quality, gimbal mounted compass in a silver-coloured, base-metal case with lugs to allow the fitting of a wrist-strap - 46mm in diameter ignoring crown and lugs. Pressing the crown down releases the hinged lid, when the lid is closed the movement is clamped. No maker's name that I can find, address of the previous owner scratched inside the lid. A very nice, well-made, collector's item.
2. An early, large-faced trench watch with unusual swing strap lugs - very clear face and hands, most of the florescent paint is still intact. Silver-coloured metal case with no hallmarks or maker's name that I can find, 33mm in diameter (ignoring lugs and crown), not working, a small part is loose inside the back. A lovely looking item ideal for spares, repair or, as it stands, for display or re-enactments.
