Bergen Nautik was a 20th Century compass manufacturer located in Bergen, Norway. This is a medium sized compass, with a diameter of 14.5 cm, and is suitable for mounting in a fixed binnacle or a portable box. Some compass fluid has escaped over the years so there's an obvious air bubble present, and the paint on the central hub of the compass card is showing signs of being affected by sunlight and the compass fluid which was typically lamp oil, or a mixture of alcohol and water.

Whoever serviced it last decided to etch the date (20/1/64) in the glass. The compass could be restored to a serviceable condition if desired.
