This review is from: Deluxe Military Liquid Metal Compass (Toy)
Bought this item thinking it would be a useful tool for being out and about in the countryside, however the product came with a large air bubble in the compass compartment, this physically pushed the dial down, preventing it from moving to North. In addition when the item was tilted, you could make the dial point any direction you wanted, not very helpful when trying to find north! Most quality compasses have the bubble in a separate 'compartment', the bubble is there to enable a level (horizontal) reading - like a spirit level. I should have realised when the product image only showed a closed product and does show the actual dial.
Returned the item and will now look at compasses with a separate compartment for the air bubble.
