The SunWatch is a modern take on time telling technology that worked 1,000 years ago.
Before iPads, iPods, cell phones, and watches people estimated the time by using sundials during the day and star dials at night. The SunWatch is based on the 1,000 year old time-piece tradition, recreated as the new modern wearable sundial for today. Using only the sun, you are able to tell the time. It's the only watch you’ll ever have that will never need batteries and has a 1,000 year guarantee! But more than that, you can temporarily disconnect from technology and racing the clock, to connect with the sun and planet, your surroundings and others by sharing a unique time telling experience with family and friends. Shepherds Watch Sundials are also great conversation starters!
* Please note, the SunWatch is calibrated to work best close to 40 degrees north.
