Was P.O.A
Code: 1510
Manufacturer Code: FL23235-1
Description
  • Original Leather Strap
  • Very Good Condition
  • Circa 1939
  • Manufactured by Kadlek for the German Air Force
  • Ministry Contract Nr. FL23235-1. Made from bakelite these compasses are rarely found and are mostly in very bad condition due to the brittleness of bakelite. This surviving example shows hardly any wear and tear and comes with its original leather strap and steel buckle still attached. Worn by Luftwaffe Navigators this is the companion piece to the Luftwaffe Observers Watch Laco-Durowe (see our reference MIL02/051). The compass together with the Luftwaffe Observer watch would have been supplied shortly before a flying mission at which time the airman signed for their receipts on an inventory sheet. After the mission was completed the airman would return to base and hand back the watch and the compass to stores possibly after debriefing. Lange Vintage German Air Force Watch can be found here

“I was looking to buy a Rolex watch which for me was a considerable amount of money. I telephoned for some advice and found that Tim was very polite, informative, helpful and friendly. More importantly, my Rolex arrived through the post well packed and undamaged. The watch was just as it had been described and I am very pleased with my purchase and that fact that I found Tim.”
