I guess I will join Sasha (our source for much memorabilia) on this one and become a bit of a tease!
As mentioned before, Engine Room seemed to believe that there was interest in watches so for this post I point you to this:
which was found in the pile of his assorted timepieces, and wonder if you can recognise it for what it is?
You are probably wrong (did I hear stopwatch?) as it is…
…in fact a compass!
of unknown (as with most of his stuff) origin, other than the place of manufacture. I assume that it is probably, due to the markings, a military piece – but if you know better please let us know!
Wherever it came from, it is rather fun – I think I shall carry it with me the next time I have to find ER!!
Yours, diablog, heading south
