Many divers take compasses for granted, considering them just an accessory to an overall dive gauge console system. Trying to navigate with a poorly designed or improperly functioning compass can be one of diving's more frustrating events. The SK-7 has set a new standard for dive compasses. The superior SK-7 features an exceptional tilt potential of +/- 30° degrees, which is 2-3 times larger than in conventional diving compasses. The SK-7 Compass has easy-to-read numerals on a phosphorescent compass card, and a large side-reading window for gun-sight accurate navigation.
The firm-grip rotating bezel with a ratchet at every 5° degree is especially designed to prevent sand-and-dirt contamination, thus allowing smooth turning in all conditions. The compass bezel has compass headings in 30° degrees numbered increments and indicator marks for every 5° degrees. Bezel has twin heading indicators for alignment of compass course and a lubber line across the compass face. The compass is liquid filled for a quick and responsive movement. Navigation was never easier with this handy retractor mount compass module. Retractor is equipped with two choices of mounting clips that easily attach to your BCD. You can attach the compass to BCD with the included plastic quick release snap clip with stainless steel split key ring. The quick disconnect fitting allowing you to remove compass from BCD after the dive for safe storage. When you need to take a compass heading simply pull the self retracting cable to desired length and when finished it will automatically retract the cable for you. Compass comes with an owner's guide and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.
Please note: The compass we sell is calibrated for Zone 1/NH (Northern Hemisphere)

Comments about Aqualung Suunto SK7 Retractable Compass:
Most expensive is not necessarily best! I like the fact that this compass is on a retractor. Unfortunately the compass needle (which is a round disc) often is stuck in its housing and wont move! To me this indicates poor craftsmanship. Also, when near large metal objects underwater (like oil rig platforms or sunken ships), it does not give correct bearings.
