A simply splendid unique personalized anniversary gift...

Spectra anniversary sundial marking time on a sunny day

One of the reasons why the Spectra sundial is such a perfect personalized anniversary gift is because it can be very uniquely customized to celebrate a special occasion. A personalized inscription can be added at no extra charge with extra lines of text, and date lines can be added to commemorate special occasions such as birthdays, weddings or anniversaries - then the the tip of the time shadow will follow the corresponding date line each year during the course of the special day.

Spectra sundial marking the actual time of a wedding ceremony
In addition to special personalized inscriptions, birthday or anniversary date lines and "moment marks" can be added to create a Spectra sundial that is a truly unique one-of-a-kind anniversary gift. The sundial layout above is from a south facing Spectra that has several date lines...there is a date line for the couple's wedding anniversary, as well as date lines for their birthdays. The couple was married on February 20th at 12:30 pm, so we added a special moment mark on their personalized anniversary date line to celebrate the actual moment in time that they were married - every year on that day! See how the tip of the time shadow is touching the special mark?

The Spectra sundial pictured above was designed to face a southwest direction, and the couple was married on August 18th at 2:30 pm. Notice that the tip of the time shadow is touching the special moment mark on their personalized anniversary date line at the actual time that they were married. As long as the sundial is designed to face a direction where it will be receiving direct sunshine at the time of the wedding ceremony, we can add a moment mark to the personalized anniversary date line that will celebrate the special moment in time on their anniversary day each and every year!

You will be given the opportunity to request personalized inscriptions and birthday or anniversary date lines near the end of the ordering process. Not all dates, or combinations of dates, are suitable for inclusion if they happen to be very close together or very near to the solstice or equinox lines. Check with Jim Tallman directly if your desired birthday or anniversary date is close to any of these days...he may have some tricks up his sleeve to make it happen for you anyway.
