You are bidding on a BEAUTIFUL example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe AK39 Armkompaβ (Wrist Compass), Fl. 23235 as used by various German pilots and crew members!
The AK39 Wrist Compass was designed for wear by pilots and crew for correctly calculating their position if forced to bail out or after a crash. Though it was designed to be worn on the wrist, it was commonly attached to various other pieces of equipment (zipper, straps, etc.).
Made of black bakelite, this compass is in EXCELLENT used condition. 95% of the original finish remains, however there are some slight marks due to the age. Brought back by a US veteran (probably from a captured pilot), it features 360 degree markings on the face, and it is still 100% functional. The bottom is clearly marked, “AK39”, and the Fl. label indicates Fl. 23235. Still retains the factory air bubble! A VERY NICE and original item for any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
