This along with the basically identical 'Silva' Wrist band 340 (sold in North America by Johnson Worldwide under the Silva label) is the best add-on wristband compass I have tried. Rotating dial, sapphire bearing, and surprisingly detailed degree markings for such a tiny compass. Great as backup to a larger protractor compass.
While I agree with the other reviewer that the 'Clipper' design beats out the Brunton and Silva of Sweden models of wristband compass, make no mistake - ALL of these small liquid-filled compasses are relatively prone to bubbles when they are exposed to high altitudes - don't put them in checked luggage on the airplane!
These Clippers are great. They are rugged and do not develope air bubbles or cloud up like some other brands I have used. Great little item during hunting season when in unfamiliar territory. I have tried the Brunton 9068 watchband compass and it develops bubbles after a few weeks of use. Also, the Clipper's dial movement is smoother.

Do not waste your money. I have used this compass for about a year. I purchased extras and gave them as gifts. Now I have to tell all my friends that they need to get rid of them.
Two of the ones I own have changed directions by 180 degrees. The north arrow now points to the south. If this had happened while depending on the compass for direction I could have spent many an hour walking the wrong way.
