SOLAR QUADRANT NAUTICAL COMPASS

The invention of the portable equinoctial sundial is attributed to Nicolas Rugendas, master watchmaker of German origin in 1620 and author of the oldest dial of the Augsburg type.

The first portable equinoctial clocks appeared in southern Germany, during the reign of Charles V, at the beginning of the 16th century. They acquired their popularity only in the seventeenth century under the name of "Augsburg dials".
