Dry Compass!

The fluid inside is mineral water. You can buy it at and marine store. Inside the compass underneath is a rubber seal that allows the fluid to expand when it''s warm. If it''s an old compass the rubber seal may be cracked. Or it can be loose. If it''s cracked you''ll need to get another.
