PRODUCT DETAILS
For centuries, humankind has been fascinated with scientific discovery – from the early astronomical breakthroughs of Galileo Galilei, to modern advancements in digital technology. Now, with Hemisferium, you can revisit the dawn of modern science…

Driven by a spirit of inquisitiveness, development and scientific-historic investigation, Hemisferium has rediscovered the wisdom of the ancients to bring to a modern era. Their beautiful (and completely functional) collection of scientific instruments are faithful recreations of the tools that played a vital role in the golden age of Science.

This magnificent Nocturlabe Keyring is a replica of an instrument dated 1570 and signed by Humphrey Cole which now rests in the British Museum. Originally used to obtain the time at night by utilising the fixed stars in sky, you can now have a little piece of history right in your pocket!

Nocturlabe Keyring features:
  • Made in Spain.
  • Crafted from antique brass.
  • Modelled off Humphrey Cole’s Nocutlabe, designed in 1570.
  • Features two discs and a pivoting dial that help you determine the time based on the fixed stars in the night sky.
  • Delicately detailed with antique-style ornamentation on the back.
  • Includes a pamphlet detailing the history of the piece and the method of operation.
  • Beautifully presented in a Hemisferium gift box.
