SETTING YOUR WATCH BY COMPASS

Ever have your watch stop while out in the woods and no means of setting it? It probably won’t happen the second time, but if it does, try this:

With your compass, or by means of a stream or lake from your map, determine which direction is south. Then point the hour hand in the direction of the sun. Slowly turn the hand around the dial, keeping it pointed toward the sun, until the south comes half way between the hour hand and 12 pay no attention to the minute hand.

This is merely the problem of using the watch as a compass, except it is solved for another factor, namely, the time. If the sun is not shining, hold the point of your knife, or a pencil, vertically against your thumb nail. A close examination will reveal a faint shadow on the dullest day, from which the direction of the sun can be found.
