Expedition Watch Band Compass Kit - Orange

Overview

A high grade, versatile, water-resistant, EDC and Field compass accessory that can be worn on a nylon NATO-style watch band or in its silicone carrier for multiple carry options. Our button compass unit is rated to a depth of 100M, cushioned in a GID silicone gasket and encapsulated by a precision milled 6061T6 Type III hard anodized billet case. The kit includes one silicone carrier.

While we can use to great effect and marvel at the products of our digital age, there is still something substantial to be respected, acknowledged and said for analog and mechanical devices. The invention and introduction of the magnetic compass transformed the known world. Unreliant on batteries or circuit boards, a magnetic compass is the directional navigation tool in its most distilled and purest form. Our design process to create this modern classic drew inspiration from similar units as used and worn by UDTs, Combat Swimmers, Explorers and Adventurers from a different era. No less relevant today as it was yesterday, a compass that only needs the earth’s magnetic field to operate and is a tried and trued navigational device for anyone who spends time in the field.
