hold on guys today we're gonna be talking about watch Bank compasses you know these are a lot of guys use them I use them in the military and even after after military occasionally I still use them not religiously or anything but for a while I did but I used to use them constantly in the military this one to.
Be exact I've had this one for I'd probably say mmm dang almost seventeen years probably that one right there so another reason why we're doing this video is to talk about this new compass this is by Omega and this is the WCT N and we'll kind of talk about the specs here of this but us a new compass.
Kameena is the the provider of compasses for the US military and you know I use those in the military as well the beta the lensatic compass that's the one we use so they recently came out with this one a lot of people hadn't even seen it yet on the market but I want to go into a video showing that and kind of talk about it and talk about a few different.
Other models that that are on the market now one of which in my survival kit here but these out of the way for a second and in my survival kit I've got this Center right here that I carry and you know this thing is phenomenal sometimes I'll attach this to my watch band and I've got it on a metal strut right now but sometimes I'll put it on my watch.
Band actually wear it on my watch man it has great great illumination you can see they're phenomenal phenomenal illumination in for seriously navigating this is what you want it's why I have it in my survival kit also have a small button compass inside inside this tin here so black scout 10 so that way I have.
Multiple compasses I like at least have two with me at all time so I can check the bearings of the other but uh you know since Rob cannot put a video link or maybe I'll do a video or something alright let's talk about the WC tan for second this is a new compass like I said and it is developed by cam Inga here in the US it's the only I think only us.
Made a button compass there is so only us made although may have components are us maybe this is the fully only us may now say a little bit larger compass it has these winged band straps here you can also it comes on a strap so you put on a velcro strap and just wear it on your wrist or you can attach it to a watch band put it on our black scow.
Tresca if you haven't got one of these rest codes from our black scout Edition unity I pick one up I think it's amazing amazing timepiece never needs a battery i'm self-winding but so you can you know put this here i play actually put it over the night i put it over the uh sorry I'm gonna give this focus put it over that last night our buckle if I was.
Gonna wear like this but the good thing about this is that it can move so you can you know get it a move with you and stuff is water proof of the 100 meters very rugged built in acid rock um so we're not freeze they were tasked by US Special Operations Command to build these compasses to you know working Arctic airborne and diving operations so.
For the best but encompass areas right now supply this one you know as far as like the ruggedness of it now the problem with this it has no illumination here bring it in close no illumination maybe they're going to put trillion trillion a minute I kind of think they probably will see my here.
So yeah I think they probably will put ready a minute but not yet so anyhow that's the WCT about a fifty dollar price point got these you get these on eBay for like two dollars never buy these they're terrible they'll develop bubbles and all that kind of stuff but I wanted to put it here this is a matter of fact is are.
Just broken on the strap part so it's it's a piece of junk now let's talk about the Prometheus design work this is also a popular compass with folks now the thing is about this is that it's really like a two dollar compass in here with a good housing it has a great housing but it's a two dollar compass now this is Japanese made compass not.
Chinese now you will see us a little bit bigger than the the Kamenka it's actually a little bit larger than the Camino it has moderate glow not really great but moderate this band is supposed to glow in here but it's not that good I mean it looks okay look what I don't like about it is that.
Huge I mean it's like you know sticks way out I just don't like that and again it's like a two dollar compass so you're paying $40 for the housing it's a two dollar compass would moderate glow now it does come with this little thing here that you can put in and put on your person but again for the price there's better out there for the price I'd go.
Ahead just pay a few more dollars and get this you know to all come presented nice housing done makes sense to me but let's talk about the same time this is probably the best button compass for the price soon toes are great compasses is what I risk my life I trust my life to all the time it's got a bezel with the remarking so you can actually shoot.
Asmus with this it has a good glow and I look look at this so this one I've had for you now 17 years barely glow here's a brand new one he glows like crazy so it has a lot of glow though the good thing is that y'all had to take your watch band off to put these on you can just kind of like slip it on you don't have to put it on even to have to.
Your watch off you can just put it on and sits very well so to me really for the pricing is like 15 bucks 20 bucks compared to some of these others you know for the price this is the best you want usa-made the most rugged compass in the world give this one right here in my opinion that'sthat's what's kicking right now so anyhow guys hope you.
Enjoyed this video I check out a few wrist compasses and also the big student toes now like I said I do wear that on my watch sometimes I'll put it on the band it's just huge are you posting videos before I'm really navigate somewhere I'll put that big sin toe on there so hey I got sup the links to these below if you're interested in them.
