This is a beautiful Brass 6 Inch Round Sundial Compass. The top of the sundial is hinged and a curved scale is used to set your local latitude angle. The magnetic compass allows the sundial to be oriented north. The compass features a needle lift mechanism to protect the jeweled bearing when being transported. There are three adjustable legs that are used to precisely level the sundial. The shadow cast by the sundial vane marks the local time. The top of the sundial can lie down flat, and both the latitude scale and the sundial vane are hinged to lay flat for compact storage. A beautiful hardwood case is included for display and storage of the Brass 6 Inch Round Sundial Compass, making this item a beautiful collectible piece, as well as a functional item for not only navigation but for tracking the passage of time.
