The golden brass nautical hourglass or sandglass is a tool used for calculating time. It is touched with top-quality golden brass polish for a sleek and elegant antique appearance. Also, the hourglass is crafted using durable equipment like solid brass, to make it long-lasting.

One factor that could affect the accuracy of the time measured is humidity. Thus, the golden brass nautical hourglass is made airtight to prevent the sand contained from the effect of humidity.

It measures 6 inches in height and has two glass-made bulbs in a pear shape vertically joined with each other. Sand flows from the upper glass to the bottom glass following a narrow path between the linked glass bulbs. The process of sand flow takes approximately 5 minutes.

As soon as the top glass bulb becomes empty, it means the above-mentioned time has elapsed. The hourglass can then be inverted to repeat the process.

Ideally, the nautical hourglass or sandglass with the compass was designed for calculating time intervals, especially by mariners. Looking back, it is one of the most popular and accurate instruments often used for measuring time while sailing.

However, it is perfect as a unique gift item, for office table design, gameplay, and for home decoration.

Additional Information

Care & Instructions

Cleaning Method

  • For your hourglass, polish brass and steel with a soft cloth, use brass cleaner for tarnish. Dust wood parts gently, and if needed, apply wood cleaner sparingly. Clean aluminum with a damp cloth and mild detergent, drying thoroughly afterward.


  • Protect your hourglass from excessive moisture. While brass, steel, and aluminum can withstand some humidity, wood may warp or crack, and metal components might tarnish under prolonged exposure.

Avoiding Chemicals

  •  Keep the hourglass away from harsh chemicals and abrasives. These can damage the surface finishes and potentially affect the glass integrity.
  • An hourglass measures time through the flow of sand from one bulb to another, traditionally used to mark short periods, such as an hour, in a visually engaging manner.
