The Sundial - the earliest type of timekeeping device, which indicates the time of day by the position of the shadow of some object exposed to the suns rays. As the day progresses, the sun moves across the sky, causing the shadow of the object to move and indicating the passage of time.  This fully functional Sundial can be placed on a plinth or pedestal, mounted on a rock or anywhere on a flat surface that is exposed to all day sun.

How to use a sun dial

  1. Place your sun dial on a flat horizontal surface outside in the sun. Make sure that your sundial is in a place where it will be exposed to sun all day.
  2. Using a compass make sure you face the end of the sun dial with the N on it, north. To find true north, use a hand compass or your phone.
  3. When the sun hits the sundial you will start to see a shadow on the numbers! This shadow is how you will determine what the time is.

Please note that this sun dial has been made to suit Perth, Western Australia time (Southern Hemisphere). For custom cities please enquire.
