I recently bought Suunto MC-2G compass on eBay. It is a global compass with a needle placed on a gimbal and both ends have small folded tips up. Compass looks new but I noticed that if its base is level the needle is not, it is tilted so that white (south) end is lower and red (north) end is up and it touches the top with a small vertical tip on the red end. Otherwise it looks functional. My understanding is it should be always level if a base is level. Is it a manufacturing defect or it is on the other samples too?
