Spot-on Sundial in Stainless Steel
An interesting dial which gives excellent reflections in the mirror-finished
stainless steel, and, with the contrasting matt circle on which
the hour lines are shown, gives the appearance of "floating on air"

Summary of our stainless steel sundials
It is exactly noon by the sun, and the unique line of light
appears for five minutes to tell you so.
Note the clear shadow on the matt dialplate,
and the crisp reflection of sky and surroundings on the mirror-polished
surface (Production models of this sundial are 41.8 cm. square,
and not rectangular as illustrated)
The 16.5 in. Spot On sundial in stainless steel is designed for
the forecourts of offices and public buildings, for public open
spaces, and for the larger garden. The dimensions of the dial are
41.8 x 41.8 cm, and it weighs 12kg (26½ lb)
elegant and robust dials incorporate the split gnomon, so that every
day at solar noon a line of light will shine through the gnomon
along the noon line. The dial plate with 10 minute lines and 5 minute
spots is matt, to ensure a really sharp shadow. The remainder of
the dial plate and the sides of the gnomon are mirror-finished.
This gives rise to some interesting reflections, both of the sky
above and the near side of the matt dial plate, so that the gnomon
from some angles appears to be suspended in space.
is a space for special engraving in the 8 x 34 panel at the foot
of the dial- plate - the engraving can incorporate mottoes, dedications,
and information about the sundial, according to the choice of the
client. Price £860 plus £20 p& p UK mainland This price does not
