Each sundial is made specifically for the latitude of its intended location, thus ensuring the highest possible accuracy. Delivery is normally 6 to 9 weeks, though urgent orders can often be processed more quickly. We ask for a 50% deposit before starting manufacture, and need the engraving instructions within the following 3 weeks. The price of the sundial complete with engraving is £860 (approx 940 Euros, $1,120 US dollars depending on exchange rates current in early September 2017) UK courier delivery is £20; rates for other destinations can be supplied on request.

Technical data (metric, with approx. equivalents in inches): The sundial baseplate measures 30 x30 cm (11.7 x 11.7 ins) and the gnomon height is around 15 cm (5.9 ins) depending on latitude. The matt circle is is 23 cm. (9 ins) in diameter, and the engraving area is 30 x 5.5cm. (11.7 x 2 ins) On the underside, the pitch circle diameter of the blind and threaded M6 holes is 20 cm (7.9 ins) . The weight of the sundial is 9 kg (20 lb.)

The hour lines are labelled in Roman numerals for winter time, and Arabic numerals for summer time. Ten-minute intervals are indicated by short lines, and the five minute intervals by spots, so the dial can be read to within a minute or two. Instructions of how to set up the sundial to point to true North, so that it tells sun time correctly, are given on our setup page. There is a wealth of other information about sundials on, another website by the designer of the Spot-On Sundial, Piers Nicholson.
