The Kepler horizontal sundial is made from either verdigrised bronze or marine grade brass, The Kepler incorporates “The Equation of Time” which is a graph that corrects solar time to clock time throughout the year. It was first calculated by the Moorish Arabs more than 1000 years ago, there is more about this in our Theory of Sundials page.
The Kepler sundial is a traditional design giving plenty of space for personalisation. The text is clearly engraved and the hours are marked in Roman numerals. There is space for a dedication of approximately 110 characters across three lines, although let us know in the comments box if you need more space.
Each dial is unique and hand engraved with the words of your choice, making it an ideal personalised gift for a special occasion. The dials are made for an exact location and will give an accurate time reading for any latitude and longitude, determined from the postcode.
Brass will slowly darken with age, adding to it’s beauty.
Bronze arrives with a rich verdigris finish.
