Technology is awesome, but can we trust it? How can we be sure that our cell phones aren't recording our brain waves and transmitting our ideas to evil corporations? How can we be sure that our watches aren't silently recording our pulses and sending the data to Big Food so they know when to advertise those juicy bacon cheeseburgers on TV and ruin our diet plans? Yeah, see, now you're paranoid too. We've taken the mirrors out of our bathrooms to avoid that classic horror movie moment, too. We recommend you do the same. Preventative paranoia is the key to success. Part of our plan is eschewing traditional watches for the sundial. Inspired by designs from Babylonia, Egypt, the Celts of Northern Europe, the Mayans and Incas and Aztecs, we've found the most imaginative and accurate wearable sundials anywhere. Instructions for reading your new sundial are included. Batteries, however, are not. They're not needed! Who needs batteries to sense the rhythms of the solar system? Guaranteed to work as long as the sun rises... and we don't want to think about the day that stops happening. How the Sundial works... On a sunny day, suspend the sundial by its black satin cord. Through a tiny hole, a thin ray of sunshine will illuminate a number on the inside of the dial showing the time of day. This Aquitaine sundial was named after Eleanor of Aquitaine, who gave one to King Henry II of England so Henry would know when to return from the hunt for their love trysts. (One must always be timely for love trysts. Tryst us on that one.) How the Stardial works... Set the middle wheel to the month, hold the dial upside down, and sight the North Star through the center hole. Move the top of the dial's arm to align with the uppermost stars of the Big Dipper, and read the time on the inner dial where the arm crosses the hour mark! Star dials were first used in the 15th century by navigators and are extremely accurate because they are based on the North Star. Product Features Pewter sundial & stardial ring pendants Tell the time without electricity, gears, or other technology Modeled after historical timepieces Approximately 1.3 inches (3.3 cm) in diameter Comes with a 30" black silk cord (or supply your own chain)
