Historical Replica

The Authentic Models Sundial and Compass, 18th century is expertly hand crafted from solid bronze. It is sold with hand coloured replica compass cards to aid use, and is an exact replica of the kind of compass and sundial used regularly by people in the 18th century.

Sundial and Compass

Villages and towns in the 18th century functioned on local time, depending on local latitude. With the arrival of coach traffic and later trains, coordinated time became a necessity. This pocket sundial requires a sundial to find north. By raising the triangular gnomon upright while pointing the compass needle, the needle pointing to North will show the time. However, this only displays the correct time if the local latitude corresponds to angle of gnomon. Interesting little devices like this were vital before the invention of pocket watches and clocks.
