The Tru-Nord Compass has been manufactured, assembled and packaged in Brainerd, Minnesota for over 66 years. Each of the small, 1″ compasses come with a lifetime warranty and a jewelled internal mechanism that’s famous for its accuracy.
The team at Huckberry have teamed up with Tru-Nord and American strapmaker, form•function•form to create the Explorer’s Watch – a wrist-top compass designed for people who need to take a quick compass bearing without fiddling in their pockets or bags.
The suitability of the Explorer’s Watch for motorcyclists is self-evident, regardless of whether you favour on or off road riding, the ability to glance at your wrist to ensure you’re not heading in the wrong direction is priceless.
