Heirloom Dual Sapphire Titanium Compass from County Comm

Sunday, April 24th, 2022

Hi, I’m Eric and I’ve got a compass problem. I own way more compasses than the average person and I can’t help myself when I see a cool one for sale. The Heirloom Dual Sapphire Titanium Compass just caught my eye.

Bearing the Maratac roll mark, this compass features a north arrow coated in Swiss Super-LumiNova Grade X1, which County Comm claims is the brightest possible none radioactive phosphorous to date. Plus, the design is classic, like a pocket watch, boasting a titanium frame.

Currently, out of stock, I’m hoping they come in soon.
