Quan Hoang sent me these pictures of an opened Taylor wrist compass. It’s the first time I see one taken apart. He took it apart because it was already damaged anyway. You can see that the actual compass section has a number stamped at the bottom. The question of course, is what this number stands for (serial number, lot number, employee number…), and if all Taylor compasses have this. It would be great if anyone could tell us more about this.
Interesting how new information keeps turning up about this subject!
