Ruggedly handsome, the nautical sundial and compass brass accessory is a piece of history that has been indispensable to pirates, sea captains and travelers for centuries.

Nestled on the corner of a desk, the compass and sundial accessory is a piece of navagation history thats still used today. If the appeal of modern technology has faded and your feet are itching for adventure then bring along this conversation piece to help guide your way around the world. Using real brass and glass to fashion a fully functional triangular shaped compass and sundial, this accessory is completed with its own custom rosewood box that hooks closed and comes with a presentation leather mat, made in the leather of your choice selected from the options during checkout, for display purposes.

The style of the past comes to life once more with this piece of alternative, functional style to use to guide your way. Also featured with this accessory is a calendar chart showcasing how to calculate the Local Mean Time, a way to devise a uniform time scale at a specific longitude when the sun is clouded over rendering the sundial useless. Mean Time is a measurement of time still strongly used in navigation and astronomy today.

If you're a traveler, a sailor or just looking for an interesting piece to gift for a wedding or recent graduate, consider the practical gift of a compass sundial richly framed inside a dark rosewood box as the piece to give.

I am absolutely in love. This was one of those things that I didn't realize I needed until I saw it. I use a parasol daily during the summer and usually have a fan stashed in my bag. Now I have a holster for them that is beautiful and very functional! The leather is beautifully designed and nice and soft. Melissa is delightful to work with and my package got here quickly. I mean Edmonton to Phoenix, AZ is quite a ways but it arrived in time for me to take it to the local botanical garden for a proper socially distanced outing. I can't wait to show it off. Also can't wait to get a few other things that I now must have. ❤
