1648652264Code 5833 Sundial CompassBrass sundial compass signed Ansonia Clock Co. Ny USA Patent Sunwatch, 1920s circa, complete with original cardboard box and instructions for use. The names of American cities and their latitudes are shown on the inside of the lid. The clock is equipped with a compass for orientation, to read the time correctly it must be oriented towards the North, the hour dial is traced inside the lid, the clock works by means of a gnomon, inserted in a slot to allow the closing of the instrument, and which projects the sun shadow on the hour dial when the clock is oriented towards North. The names of American cities and their latitudes are shown on the inside of the lid. This simple and ingenious system spread in Europe starting from the 17th century. Closed 5x7,8 cm - 1.96x3 inches, thickness 1 cm - 0.39 inches.

From the antiquity to the present day sundials were made in different types, shapes and sizes, such as portable models that performed the functions of our wristwatches and pocket watches. Different people and different cultures have also adopted various ways of measuring time in relation to their needs: we can still observe ancient sundials that do not follow the hours that we use today (astronomical hours) but, for example, Babylonian hours, Italian hours, canonical hours, etc.
