Museum Replica does the wrist navitron work? Like does the sundial, latitude finder and compass work?

Oh, now this is a cool item. Nicely made and a nice fiddly gadget. Two things.
1) To the chap who asked if it worked - If you want a decent compass, see an army store. As long as there is sun, the dial will work. The compass does move and eventually gets there, but I saw this as more a 'prop' item. Things fold and unfold, but I certainly wouldn't use it in orienteering...I would use it at a Steampunk convention, gig or larp (where the rules make it 'work':)

2) I will add this before people rate this item low on a couple of points. When you first get the item, the sundial       doesn't flip - but a quick bend of the curved metal bit makes it work perfectly. The strap wont fit most wrists, but is a very simple job to create holes. A staple part of Steampunk - tinkering and fiddling with things. If things don't work at first, tinker - these are 'replicas' after all:)

I say! This review was longer than War and Peace...

Solidly built and functional.  However the leather wrist band is made of very thin leather and tends to slip.  You will need to punch a few extra holes if you want to wear it like a wrist watch.  Still a great find.  Set the arm to 33 degrees, in Georgia, to get an accurate reading from the sundial.  Lots of fun.

May be too big for your wrist, so a leather hole punch tool maybe needed for a better fit.
