"This is honestly a gorgeous compass.
Several reviews noted its size, which is indeed large - still, the dimensions are clearly noted on the purchase page for this item, so you shouldn't be surprised. I actually like the large size - I think it adds to its regal look :)
I gifted this to my boyfriend for his birthday, and he (and everyone else at the party) just BEAMED. It is very sleek, classy, has a great shine, the compass needle moves very smoothly with no wobble, and no air bubbles in the liquid. It's a very well-made product!
The only negative I have is the opening clasp. It's not difficult to open (you pull it, instead of push), but pulling the latch makes for a cumbersome open... and you also have to pull the latch again in order to close it, rather than simply being able to click the compass closed like you would for a pocketwatch. Not sure why it was made this way with a pull latch for open/close, instead of a push-click latch?
All in all, however - I still love this product. My boyfriend adores it, and is actually on a hiking trip using it right now! It makes for a beautiful, classy gift :D"
