    Watchstrap Wrist Compasses

    We’re all slaves to our own experience, but the latest social media craze seems to be wrist compasses on watch straps; makes me laugh/weep.

    Watches are made of steel. Duh.



    That said, for anyone wanting to ‘war up’ their battle watch, whilst telegraphing a lack of any military or navigational competence at all, they’re a solid choice.

    I often wear a wrist compass, but I wear it on my right wrist, away from the compass.

    Not sure, though, that the steel tanks on my back don't affect it!

    ^Nice, Jase.

    Ideally twinned with a flip-phone holstered under the arm.

    Possibly Aviators with mirror lenses and elasticated shorts with double cadet stripe socks.

    You need one of these, a compass built into the NATO.

    It's all been done before, even when I were a lad . . .

    So tempting!

    Didn't know they did the Moonshot.

    Trying to think of a use for a hidden magnet in a shoe...
