Topograph Dial


The Topograph is our most intricate design, not only does it have the ‘Equation of Time’ graph to help you adjust sun-time to clock-time but we also engrave pointers to places of specific significance to you; special holiday destinations or the homes of loved ones.

Our craftsmen will then calculate the direction and distance to your important places and engrave appropriately on the dial.

The Topograph makes an ideal gift for well traveled globe trotters!

Detail your inscription ‘Destinations’ in our comments box to receive a preview of the dial.
