This nautical dial is classic and simple, giving prominence to your dedication which is placed centrally under the gnomon (pointer). The time is clearly marked and the open face of the dial will catch the shadow on even the dullest autumn days.
The Nautical Sundial is handmade from either verdigrised bronze or marine grade brass and is precision engineered to give a beautiful finish. Each Nautical dial is unique and carefully engraved with your choice of words.
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.
There is space for about 40 characters on 2 lines, although let us know in the comments box if you need more space. The Nautical looks equally good without personalisation.
Brass will slowly darken with age, adding to it’s appearance.
Bronze arrives with a rich verdigris finish.
