THE KALA POCKET SUNDIAL

This solid brass and steel 60 mm diameter equatorial ring sundial is a contemporary take on a historical model - the original can be found at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

Precision-manufactured in the same factory for the last 20 years by the Kala family near Graz in Austria, we are proud to say it achieves the official international standard for pocket watches.

It tells the true solar time anywhere in the world because the Sun's angle to the equatorial plane takes different values over the course of the year, and the small hole mask in the centre of the sundial is adjustable, plus set to the date. The result is accuracy estimated by experts to be better than +/- 10 minutes.

Once setup, the sundial is a model of our planet too, with the bridge parallel to the earth's axis. It can thus be used as a precise compass - making a truly versatile gift.
