The CIELO was presented to King Abdullah II of Jordan by Angela Merkel as a welcome gift during his state visit to Germany in September 2019.
In November 2023 the German Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier travelled to Oman for political talks. The German head of state personally chose our CIELO Ring Sundial Gold as a state gift for the Sultan of Oman from a variety of suggestions put before him.
The equinoctial ring sundial originates from the "Golden Age" of sundials between the 16th and 18th century. It was also called the "Queen of Sundials", because it is the only sundial which can find due south without a compass and can be used at any latitude all over the world.
The CIELO [ital. heaven] represents the highest level of development in the equinoctial ring sundial (registered for patent), is simpler to use and more accurate. And it is a model of the firmament, which helps us to understand the origins of time measurement from an authentically cosmic point of view.
Glossy parts coated with palladium or gold, meridian disc and date ring made of stainless steel, all scales and time ring made of anodized aluminium with scratch-resistant printing. Detailed English manual (see documents).
"It is more than a great piece. It is like a jewel!"
