Buy yourself a great piece of World War Two military aeronautica. The B-16 compass, nicknamed the 'Whiskey Compass' because of the liquid that filled its internal gimbal, was made by the Bendix Aviation Corporation in the USA.


There were two types of compass illumination used by Bendix. The radium dial used on night fighters and the type for sale here, the fluorescent type. This compass was used widely on a variety of military aircraft, like the P-40 Kittyhawk for instance, and was the standard compass variant fitted in all US Army and Navy aircraft in WW2. The compass was made to a 3 1/8 inches in diameter to fit in the aircraft instrument panels.


This compass has cracked glass indicative with a crash and has no fluid inside. A great conversation piece.
