Barometers, Clocks & Weather Instruments

 Orion sets mounted, title + Constell. 22. 8

BARIGO   “Orion”  Range.

These instruments have compact cases with fixed bezels and domed glasses. The diameter is 102 mm. The instruments come in BRASS polished  and in BRASS nickel plated ( Nista is Barigo’s trade name for this version )

Marine instruments are usually mounted onto a wood panelling in yachts. As I sell these instruments mostly for home use, I have decided to mount the sets onto a vertically hanging wooden boards with concave mouldings all round, size 140 x 380 mm. The complete depth is 95 mm. The Barometers are for normal altitude ( up to a 1000m ) Both the Barometer and the HygromThermo Hygro CU. strip of center dial DSCN9846eter are special precision instruments. You get four instruments in three casings. Orion, CU Clock, dark Mer. 200x192, png DSCN9812

Three brass “key -plates” invisibly fitted to the wooden board, hold the Orion instruments firmly in place, but easily removable for e.g. battery change in the clock. Details with the instructions.

I have three sets available, two Brass /  Nickel plated on the left with a dark Meranti board. One Brass polished unit on Red Saligna, on the right.   Boards are interchangeable and we also can make them to order.

The price of  R 5860.– includes courier within S.A.

Another type of weather instrument sets will be on the site by the end of October.  

And then there is the project for a larger barometer including two marine type combination sets.

For some information on Weather Instruments generally, you can check my three posts right here on this page or in “The How? + Why?”       one of the six MENUS on top of each page.
