An Antique Chromed Brass Pocket Watch Type Cased Magnetic Compass, employing a variation on the Singer Pattern Floating Dial, which in this instance is made from Mother of Pearl for easier reading in low light.
This dates from the late 19th / early 20th Century and was originally intended for use in conjunction with a Fob or Watch Chain and kept in a Waistcoat Pocket or similar.
