⟶ Can also be used as a precise compass once set up, making a truly versatile instrument!


Although sundials have been around for a very long time, they never worked across latitudes until around 500 years ago.

At that time the Universal Equinoctial Ring Sundial - the inspiration for our sundial - began to be used by a new wave of sailors, explorers and travellers.

Our sundial tells the true solar time anywhere in the world because the Sun's angle to the equatorial plane takes different values over the course of the year, and the small hole mask in the centre of the sundial is adjustable, plus set to the date.

Once set up it is also a model of our planet with the bridge parallel to the earth's axis, so it can thus be used as a precise compass too!

⟶ Fully assembled weight: 40 g.

⟶ Ø 60 mm / 2.36 inches diameter.

Our family has been making precision pocket sundials for over 25 years in Austria.

Our father, Michael Kala, designed the three machines which we use to cut, press and ink all the critical parts for each piece.



Read the time anywhere in the world. The three dimensions work together like clock-work, bringing ancient calculations into a modern function.

Once set up, 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.



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!
