The Roman is a traditional horizontal sundial made from either marine grade brass or verdigrised bronze. There is plenty of space for you to express yourself, with space for 180 characters on four lines, although let us know in the comments box if you need more space. Use it for favourite poetry lines or a personal dedication.
The text is clearly engraved and the hours are marked in Roman numerals. The sundial is made from heavy marine grade brass or verdigrised bronze, and is precision engineered to give an accurate time reading.
Each dial is unique, making it a beautiful personalised gift for a special occasion or for a special person. The dials are made just for you and your exact location so give an accurate time reading for your latitude – this is based on your postcode.
Brass will slowly darken with age and develop a patina, adding to its beauty.
Bronze arrives with a rich verdigris finish.
