The ultimate gadget of 1930s – Jaeger LeCoultre Compass via NOTCOT. Is this real?

  1. I have no doubt that his thing is exceedingly cool, though I admit I’m not sure what it does. Seems to have a lot of camera terminology on it.

    But the blades and such…well…I smell Photoshop. Compare the first and last pictures in the original post. That, and those are Victorinox knife blades for sure, some introduced *much* later than the 1930s.

    Still, I want one — whatever it is.

  2. The Magnifying Lens is definately from a Swiss Army Knife. With a plastic Frame.. no Way it is genuine.

    The Camera Part looks quite real
