See how it works

Craftmanship

  • The Kala family has been making precision pocket sundials for 20 years in Austria.
  • Only one batch is produced each year, with every third sundial fully disassembled and checked to ensure quality.

Precision

  • Read the time anywhere in the world. The three dimensions work together like clock-work, bringing ancient calculations into a modern function.
  • Once setup, the sundial is a model of our planet with the bridge parallel to the earth's axis. It can thus be used as a precise compass too.

Uniqueness

  • Sundials were mentioned in early texts across all religions. They have been used to tell the time and navigate throughout modern history.
  • Sometimes they are an excuse to enjoy a sunny moment, Sometimes they are simply a reminder of the past. But one thing is for sure: the gift of true time is never wasted.
