With an interior magnetic compass and an external wooden box, the antique sundial compass makes a complete statement piece for a couple of purposes. The magnetic compass is responsible for the sundial to incline North.

This beautiful handmade product features solid brass that offers needed durability and resistance against impact. The top of the antique reproduction sundial comes with a pivot and a curved scale. The scale helps you set the angle for your local latitude.

The compass is rotatable to enable the North orientation (that is the red end) to come on top of the N/North mark on the sundial. This pocket compass comes in a shiny wooden box to provide an amazing look and protection.

Additional Information

Care & Instructions

Cleaning Method

  • For brass compass care, dust with a soft cloth. Use brass cleaner for tarnish, gently polishing and buffing to shine. Avoid abrasives to prevent scratches.

Moisture-Proofing

  • Store your compass in a dry place to prevent corrosion or tarnishing. Brass is resistant to moisture, but prolonged exposure can affect its appearance and the compass's functionality.

Avoiding Chemicals

  • Keep the compass away from harsh chemicals and alcohol, which can damage the brass finish and potentially interfere with the compass's magnetic accuracy.

Note: Given its handcrafted nature, treat your compass with extra care to maintain its craftsmanship and aesthetic appeal.

Usage
