The sundial is aligned with the proper latitude angle using a protractor, and true north is determined using a compass and the magnetic north declination of the region.

Triangle Sundial Brass Compass with Wooden Box, which features some classic brass carvings and movable legs, and a level. It features everything contained in a hardwood display box with brass accents.

Large 4-inch sundial compasses are among the most exquisite things you have ever seen. There’s an excellent triangle chamfer form. This exceptional limited-edition product is a sight to behold.

The sundial has a foldable back and a hinged curving scale that you may use to determine your location’s latitude angle. The magnetic compass’s ability to allow the sundial to be pointed North makes the sundial and compass combination very useful.

The device has an integrated fluid level that enables you to perfectly level the sundial by adjusting the three beveled legs. When being transported, the jeweled bearing of this compass is safeguarded by a needle lock mechanism.

This is crucial because the majority of low-end compasses frequently generate inaccurate readings as a result of the needle shifting during movement.

The sun’s shadow with the extendable vane casts serves as a visual cue for local time. Before repacking, the entire unit can be folded inward. The sundial vane and the latitude scale include hinges that allow them to lay flat for convenient storage.

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.
