Our Urania Propitia was made in the Astonomical compendia style, particularly favoured in the 16th century.

In the Urania Propitia we found inside the Renaissance character casing, a folding gnomon sundial, mounted on a compass with a graduated scale from 10 to 30º for correcting magnetic declination.

To know the time, place the instrument on a flat surface and avoid any magnetic interference tha may prevent it from working correctly. Lift up the gnomon and make it point towards the North direction of te compass. The shadow projected onto the hour quadrant indicates solar time.
