Bronze Explorer Sundial $94.00

The Explorer sundial represents an elegant blending of scientific accuracy with wearable art.

In 1777 the Marquis de Lafayette presented a silver Explorer-type dial to George Washington as a token of his admiration and desire to fight by his side in the American Revolution. The Explorer was particularly popular with explorers and ship captains as it takes into account the latitude as well as the angle of the sun to give a more accurate reading.
How to use the Explorer sundial.Push the inner ring so it's perpendicular to the outer ring. Then turn the outer ring to line up the latitude with the tiny notch below the loop. Align the upper part of the bar to face north, and the shadow on the inner ring tells the time!

The Explorer is a fascinating educational tool and conversation starter.
