Classier sundial than many. I haven't calibrated it yet so I can't vouch for its accuracy, but one nice feature is that the angle of the gnomon can be adjusted independently of the base, so you don't have to be too fussy about where to put it. It's pretty solid, looks nice, and I think it should weather well even outside in lots of rain (I live in Oregon). This sundial would not look on the ground, however: it's too small and doesn't have the proper base for being on the ground. You should plan to mount it either on a pedestal or a table (or large rock or whatever). I just had one minor complaint: the gnomon (an 'arrow') is a little too loose in its mount and slips down, so the back points of the 'arrowhead' wind up resting against the mount instead of sitting an inch or so above it (which would look a bit better).
Beautiful garden piece! I bought this for my husband for Father's Day. I placed it on a cement pedestal, and it looks absolutely beautiful in our backyard, next to some hydrangeas and tiger lillies! The design is elegant and the weight of it is solid. It looks very pretty in the sunlight since the brass shines! I highly recommend a pedestal base for this sundial so it is visible from a distance in your yard. Love it!
Classy Looking. overall the sundial looks great - it has a nice antiqued finish to it and is of the correct proportion to add elegance to any garden The only downside was the one set screw which is used to secure the sundial to the base is far too flimsy - the metal saddle which straddles the arms of the sundial and secures it to the base cracked and split when the set screw was tightened.
Perfect size, easy install. We have had a sundial for about a year and a half. It has been sitting on a table in the basement. unable to find a mount for it, and unwilling to just put it on the ground. I saw this and ordered it. A :30 second attachment and we were good to go. it makes a great addition to the backyard decor.
