LeCoultre Compass Tripod, 1930s

CHF 1,500

Sold

Rare and fine Swiss made LeCoultre Compass pocket ultra-light collapsible table top tripod, made of aluminium in fountain pen shape. Supplied for use with the Compass miniature camera, manufactured in Switzerland by Jaeger LeCoultre in 1937. It has a ball and socket joint at the top to allow of tilting. The tripod is actually considerably rarer than the Compass camera itself.

Quote from official Jaeger LeCoultre website:
The Compass was the result of a bet in which Lord Noel Pemberton Billing boasted he could create a camera of unprecedented quality comprising every possible function and yet small enough to fit inside a cigarette packet! After years of development, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture brought out the Compass. 4000 of them were made. This exceptional camera featured an exposure meter, range finder, EV indicator, angle viewfinder, telescopic lens shade, inbuilt filters, and a device for panoramic and stereoscopic views. In 1939 an improved model, the Compass II, was introduced. It was offered as a free upgrade to original Compass owners. About 5000 cameras in total were made before production was prevented by war.

Dimensions: 145 x 16 mm (closed). Everything seems in fully working order and good 7/10 condition.
