This piece looks amazing. I got it for a steampunk costume and it will fit the bill perfectly after I glue a couple things onto it. With the pictures, the blank side is the top and the side with the directions is the bottom, so it's perfect for putting a design on the top and still using it when you set it down on something.

The instructions are a little hard to read if you can't see small print, but I don't really have a problem with that. The compass part of it seems a little sensitive, as it takes a few seconds for it to settle down, but if you're using this out in the field and you don't have anywhere you need to be, that's hardly a big deal.

The delivery was fast, and it came packadged nice and securely.

I really enjoyed this product, everyone I showed it to thinks it is authentic, and I have to keep telling them that it is not. And thank you that it is not, I carry it around with me most of the time, and it is fun to use (it works, obviously). It is a really fun item to have, but I recommend you to be careful with it. It proves me that it is a sturdy sundial, but the look of it makes it seem delicate, so don't be too rough, for cautious sake.

Got this for my husband as a part of his christmas gift. It arrived in the mail a lot sooner than I thought and was a HIT with hubby! It looks antique and my husband said it was one of his favorite christmas gifts.

This little gem is a wondefully crafted, accurately produced and durable timepiece that everyone will love. I have tried both the compass and the sundial and they are excitingly fun to use and compare with todays technology.

I'm kind of surprised to see so many positive reviews. It's your usual India-made brass curio, kind of cool and heavy, but basically of low quality and little utility. The "leather" band around the compass is actually a decal that was coming off already when I received it. The "cord gnomon" is a fragile thread that looks ready to come off with the slightest tension -- tension being necessary for it to work properly. The dial bounces around like most three-dollar compasses and refuses to settle. OK I guess if you just want to set it on a shelf as something that looks sort of like an antique. I wish I'd shopped around longer because I've found better brass sundial compasses for less money on Amazon since I bought it. It's just not worth the trouble to return it, along with the absolute junk case and overpriced chain I bought as part of the "set" in a moment of relaxed judgment.

I bought this as a present that was part of a theme of gifts. The recipient loved it and asked if I knew how old it was; I almost didn't have the heart to tell him it was a reproduction. Definitely worth the price.

Looks and feels like an old family heirloom. Well made. Has heavy feel to it. Was unsure about compass accuracy until I checked it with rearview mirror in my Chevy. Sundial accurate when you use the engraving on back. Dial displayed time @ 3:45pm. This was 10 minutes fast, the engraved chart on backside of compass shows an "F" for Faster. Would recommend this quality product to a friend
