Sundials - the historic way to measure time

Long before mechanical clocks have been invented, time was measured through the position of the sun. Sun Clocks were used to show the time for the public. Today the remainders of this archetype of clocks are sometimes seen on ancient buildings - often with sun fainted colours and missing shadow stick. The knowledge to revive this ancient tradition has been kept within the Rauscher Tower Clock Company.


New sundials

Sun clocks are something special and always an attraction i.e. to public or private buildings or floral clocks in public parks. When calculated and installed in the correct manner sun clocks do actually show the unique local time. This time often differs from that in standardized time zones yet it is an effective way to show the biological sun time which drives most organisms.
