Helios Sundials

"Carlo Heller's sundial is a precision instrument, sensational, aesthetically pleasing, weather-proof and handcrafted in an unusually loving fashion: It brings a totally new perspective to the ancient idea of time measurement via the earth's orbit of the sun."

The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) writes about the HELIOS Subsolaris and its inventor on 4 September 2001. Until today Helios e.K. offers you an exclusive range of accurate sundials with modern design.

These include the historic ring sundial by Michael Kala, whose sons Hannes (pictured) and Matthäus have taken over the reins of the manufactory. We would also like to recommend the glass SOLEMIO cylinder sundial by Dr. E.
