The AK39 was designed to be worn on the wrist, although it was often attached to other pieces of equipment. The black coloured bakelite compass is in good functional condition. The compass is neatly marked on the back with a Work number (Werk Nr: 35321) and a Luftwaffe Contract Number (Anforderz.: FL23235). The compass is nicely maker marked by the company of 'Kadlec' from Prague. The compass is complete with its original leather straps as found, these however might be period replacements. This is a nice original Luftwaffe Pilot's compass in good used condition!
