TThe prismatic compass makes it possible to look simultaneously at the landscape, i.e. the target over a line of sight engraved in a glass window (in the lid) and- at the angular values of the compass card through an optical device that can be adapted to the user's view.

U.S. Gauge Co.

Established in 1904 and located in Sellersville, Pennsylvania. The Large Model has a rifle-type sight on top of the casing  and on its side, a window opening on the compass rose is marked YOU ARE LOOKING. One only needs then to read the bearing's value. The line-of-sight on the casing is turned by 45° against the strap so as to allow for taking a bearing with extended arm.


AN EXACT  COPY OF THE LARGE COMPASS IS ABOVE

These words also appear on a 1950-1960 smaller model called "Trail-blazer" sold by a retailer called The  ROYAL AMERICAN COMPANY. The  trail-blazer came with leather strap and a   unser's instructions in the box.

SUUNTO. A Finnish company founded in 1936, were the inventors of the first fluid filled compass. Though Fluid compasses already existed before theirs, itwas the design that made it practical. This new design consisted of a capsule made of elastic parts of identical dilatation coefficient glued together so that no bubble could form under any temperature or pressure variation.
