This model is a sea-going, local-hour quadrant based on a device called a clinometer.

This replica has been calculated for a latitude of 51.5º N

The name, Cappuccino Quadrant is derived from the best-known version of this solar clock, in which the path of the pearl in both tropics traces two lines that resemble the hood of Capuchin monks.

The Quadrant measures 110m in height, 80mm wide and 4mm thick.
