In a simplified version it is also known as the sundial.The armillary sundial differs from the garden sundial in that it is three-dimensional in its presentation and is more accurate when giving time. It has a fixed gnomon style that is aligned with the Earth's rotational axis and a spherical shadow-receiving surface that is aligned equidistant from the axis. In order for the armillary to be used accurately it must be positioned properly. Once this is done, reading the armillary is accomplished by simply locating the edge of the shadow cast by the gnomon style on the shadow-receiving surface and noting the numerical and graduated hatch marks. These armillary spheres are solid brass.
The heavy solid brass bases are mounted on turned solid hardwood, and the bottoms are covered with felt.
