An extremely unique desktop accent, our fully functioning Brass Sundial Compass with Wood Base will actually help you estimate the time no matter where in the world you are. The brass and glass sundial compass sits in a handsome round sheesham wood base with a dark finish and the brass components of the sundial all fold flat when not in use.
These include the gnomon (the triangular shaped piece that casts the shadow), the latitude quadrant (the curved brass part marked 0-60) and the chapter ring (the circle displaying Roman numerals). By correctly aligning these parts based on your location and pointing the compass to North, you'll have an estimate of your local time accurate to within about a quarter hour.
Even when it's not in use, this sundial compass will be a handsome addition to a desktop, library shelves or mantel.
