Default Compass restoration

I was given a pair of compasses to rebuild which seemed pretty
straight forwards until I got to the point of having to repaint the
body.

Does anyone know what paint is used? Or something that
does not react with mineral oil or purified kerosene?

Thanks

Not being a duly licensed instrument technician and all, I categorically
deny painting the lubber line with Testor's model paint.

Refinishing the decorative coating of the cabin interiors is allowed preventive
maintenance.
