Here's another Kriegsmarine compass, this one weighs a ton, for its size its extremely heavy. After the Occupation here in Jersey quite a few fishing boats and the like had ex Kriegsmarine compass's fitted. I remember a number of years ago swapping a set of old wagon wheels for a compass a bit smaller that this one and had to go to see the chap in the harbour where we removed the compass from his boat. Things have changed a lot since then as such things don't happen like that anymore.
All the best,
