Kala Sundial

Like Clockwork

Kala Sundial is led by Austrian brothers Hannes and Matthaeus Kala. They continue the legacy of their father Michael, a former stonemason who was fascinated with old sundials, which were not portable. After years of research, Michael created a universal hand-held sundial to put ancient astronomical technology at contemporary fingertips.

Kala Sundial is led by Austrian brothers Hannes and Matthaeus Kala. They continue the legacy of their father Michael, a former stonemason who was fascinated with old sundials, which were not portable. After years of research, Michael created a universal hand-held sundial to put ancient astronomical technology at contemporary fingertips.

This pocket sundial is both functional and ornamental. Crafted with brass, the instrument can tell the time accurately within 15 minutes at any latitude, thanks to an adjustable double ring that folds up when not in use. Whether sitting on a desk or resting in the palm of your hand, its detailed finish is a sure conversation-starter.
