    Hourdial

    Hourdial

    The classic horizontal sundial is reinvented as Hourdial in polished stainless steel and machined brass, with bold hour lines and sleek styling. It is a precision instrument that will measure time whenever the sun shines.

    Orbdial

    Orbdial

    This sets a horizontal sundial within an armillary sphere with both meridian ring and equinox ring in a design unique to Macmillan Hunter that may be the very first of its kind.

    Dihelion

    Dihelion

    This creative double sundial is able to tell the time and see the season of the year. Its design is inspired by imagery of the sunflower which grows tall in summer just as the sun climbs high in the sky.

    Solar Time

    Solar Time

    With declination lines for solstice, equinox and day length and an analemma for clock time, the vertical Solar Time is as much a scientific instrument as it is a beautiful sculpture.

    Earthdial

    Earthdial

    By placing the Earthdial on a hand-made, stoneware globe Macmillan Hunter evokes the earth spinning in space. The organic form of the globe supporting the highly engineered dial reflects the harmony between science and nature.

    Noondial

    Noondial

    The beauty of the vertical Noondial lies in its simplicity and in the elegant analemma on the dial which allows it be read for clock time as well as solar time.

    Pendulum

    Pendulum

    Pendulum recalls the time when sundial and clock belonged together. This modern design shows a clock pendulum to symbolise timekeeping. It is an accurate sundial.

    Orbit

    Orbit

    Swirling planets crossing the Orbit intersect to form an oculus that casts a light spot onto the face of this freestanding vertical dial. This intriguing and beautiful sundial is a unique and original design.
