This timepiece is part of our Land Series of watches featuring a rotating inner bezel that can be used as a compass, emergency signal code references engraved on the case back and a high legibility dial layout.
To use the compass in the northern hemisphere:
1. Point the hour hand towards the direction of the sun and rotate the inner bezel until the South compass marker is placed half way between the hour hand and the 12 o’clock marking.
2. Before noon, rotate the inner bezel clockwise from your hour hand to the 12 o’clock marking, while afternoon, the rotation is counter clockwise from your hour hand to the 12 o’clock marking.
3. The middle point between the two marks South, while the point directly across from it marks North.
