1626094013Code 7020 Magnetic compassRare magnetic compass for nautical detection, in brass, signed Cruchon & Emons Berne n. 78576 of 1918 made for the U.S Engineer Corps. It is a small compass, diameter 5.3 cm - 2.1 inches height 1.8 cm, 0.6 inches; typically used in recreational sailing, therefore on boats less subject to magnetic deviation. It can also be held in the hand and therefore away from the magnetic fields of the boat. It is equipped with a sighting system with sight and an eight-wind goniometric rose in order to make it possible to measure the angle between the line of sight and the north indicated by the magnetic needle. Complete with needle lock. Excellent condition, fully functional.

The use of a magnetic needle is described by the Arab scientist Bailak Al Qabajaqi: in 1242 during a travel from Tripoli in Syria to Alexandria the captain of the ship used it, putting in a pail with water a piece of cork with a needle and magnetizing it with a magnet; the needle moved immediately in the North-South direction.
