The Topographic sundial has an added compass ring around the outside, this gives lots of space for engraving the sundial with arrows pointing to your special places. These could be your childhood homes, where your family live or to bring memories of travels or distant relatives to mind, making the Topographic the perfect family gift for anyone with a far-flung family or a lovely wedding present for well-travelled couples.
The Topographic Sundial is handmade from either verdigrised bronze or marine grade brass and is precision engineered to give a beautiful finish. Each Topographic sundial is unique and carefully engraved with your choice of words. We take especial care in calculating the distance and bearing from your home to your choice of destinations and will always send you a preview of the dial for your approval before making it.
There’s no need to wait for a big birthday or special anniversary to buy a sundial, why not give one to your garden and make it happy!
Brass will slowly darken with age, adding to it’s appearance.
