Customer Question
I have a surveyors...

I have a surveyors watch with a compass and a small level in the center of it. I would like to know if there is any value to it

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It has craftsman on the front By Relic Japan and number ZM10046

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I think it could be attached to a belt for quick reach and the level still works and it also has north,south,east and west on it.
