Finding a gift for a world traveler can be difficult. What do you get the person who has been everywhere and done so many things?
The ShalinIndia Tabletop Brass Fit Screw Sundial Compass With Circular Bubble Level is the perfect solution! Inspired by the antique compasses that sea captains once used to chart the waters, this beautiful instrument will look stunning on his or her table or desk and will be a reminder of their many travels.
Visually striking, the ShalinIndia Tabletop Brass Fit Screw Sundial Compass With Circular Bubble Level has a layered case with the numbers and markings carefully engraved in genuine brass. Open it up, and you'll find a bubble level that lets you know whether or not the compass is perfectly flat. This is important, as an instrument of this style cannot take accurate readings if it is held at an angle.
To make leveling the ShalinIndia Tabletop Brass Fit Screw Sundial Compass With Circular Bubble Level even easier, the legs on the bottom are fully adjustable. You can modify them to keep the compass flat even on desks and tabletops that are uneven due to their age. As a result, reading this sophisticated compass is easy, and you can count on reliable results.
Measuring 2.5 inches in diameter, the ShalinIndia Tabletop Brass Fit Screw Sundial Compass With Circular Bubble Level is intended to be a display item but is fully functional. The compass is carefully handcrafted out of solid brass by artisans from India who take the time to create instruments using the same techniques used when compasses like this one were the only way to chart and navigate.
Own a bit of history with a compass unlike anything you've seen before or give someone the perfect travel-inspired gift. Order the ShalinIndia Tabletop Brass Fit Screw Sundial Compass With Circular Bubble Level now.
From the manufacturer
Small as a Pocket Watch
We have reached a stage today where the knowledge we use is so advanced that we often forget where it all originates from. This handcrafted, pocket-friendly Brass device carries a sundial and a compass; beautified with etched embellishments, numbers and characters harkening back to the Victorian times, crafted to structurally emulate a pocket-watch.
The top of the lid carries the sundial which opens up to reveal the compass; the Gnomon of the sundial – the piece which shall be casting the shadow – is also collapsible. The lettering and artwork have been stylized as an homage to the Victorian era; which saw the boon of the invention and mass production of such devices.
Where the metalling loop has been provided for the attaching of a chain, there is a button that – when pressed – falls comfortably into place and opens the lid carrying the sundial to reveal the compass. Thee needle of the compass rests perfectly on greyish-black stone, and is fashioned in the form of an arrow. The face of the compass intricately demarcates each degree (with relation to direction), and is numbered in sets of 10; the face also carries eight arrows for instant reading of the compass, demarcating north, north east, east, and so forth.
Easy to carry
Designed for portability, the skeletal structure has been crafted akin to a pocket-watch in order to ensure the most effective form of compactness. Attachable to a chain, it is easy to ensure the safety and security of this device; which in turn hardly occupies any space.
This extremely compact device has been handcrafted out of solid brass, and has been designed to be worn using a chain, while being stored in one’s pocket. At the same time, the stylization of the structure, as well as the numbering and artwork, of the device make it great for decorative purposes. The device provides a sundial, as well as a compass, and combines functionality with aesthetic appeal.
