The left half of the drawing shows the original concept - the dial was to be engraved so I included some traditional flourishes.
Engraving ceased to be an option, so I redesigned the dial to be cast in bronze. Considerable detail had to be eliminated to adapt to the limits of bronze casting. At the same time two non-traditional features were implemented.
Since the dial was to be located where it could only be read from the north, the numerals were inverted; and since the dial would be rarely visited in the winter, the numerals were laid out to indicate daylight saving time.
The dial is 8" in diameter, and is located on the Leftwich estate in Northern Westchester County, New York.
