Recreating a traditional design, our Color-Faced Brass Compass features a brass case with a self-leveling, free-spinning colored compass rose. Sometimes called a windrose, the compass rose is the design used to display the cardinal directions: North, South, East and West, as well as their intermediate points. This brass compass features an 8-point, colored compass rose which displays the eight principal winds—that is, the four cardinal directions (N, E, S, W) plus the four "intercardinal" directions (NE, SE, SW, NW), at angles of 45°. An ideal gift for the would-be gentleman adventurer, this brass-cased compass will guide your way for years to come.
