I'm a sucker for a compass and chose this particular one because it’s proportionally perfect.


It’s small and chubby, in great condition and has a crisp hallmarks for Chester 1927, so getting on for antique but 97 year old if we're splitting hairs.


Set into a generous 9 carat gold surround, this is the perfect nautical piece.


There is surface wear to the glass which you can see in the photos but the dial is still visible and it's really what we'd expect to see from a working piece of this age because yes, this compass is still compassing on a hundred or so years after it was made. QUAL-I-TY.


Your talismanic reminder that you'll always get where you need to be.

  • All of my pieces are at the very least pre-loved and most of them are vintage or antique. This item is not brand new and as such, will not look brand new. Please expect signs of wear to include kinks in links, surface wear to gold, scuffs to stones and accept this as part and parcel of buying second hand jewellery. I will be as clear as I can with item descriptions and condition statement and aim to make sure you are aware of any potential defects before you buy.
