Dear sundial friends,


This is to let you know that the Sundial Society of Flanders (Belgium) has discontinued the publication of "Zonnetijdingen", as it appeared increasingly difficult to gather enough articles.

However, the Belgian Society contacted the Sundial Society of the Netherlands which has been publishing its "Bulletin" for 40 years already.
The two societies decided to join editorial forces in a new journal, ZON & TIJD (Sun & Time).

The fact that Dutch is the common language of both societies made this an easy choice.

Our Austrian friends may note some similarity with the title of their journal, “Sonne + Zeit”. We hope they take this as a compliment J

You may have a look at the first issue, which has articles by Dutch as well as Flemish authors. The issue is temporarily available from the English section of the new website of De Zonnewijzerkring at:


The journal is in Dutch, of course, but features an English summary of the contents on p. 37-38.

Best regards,

Frans Maes (NL) & Eric Daled (B), editors



Eine belgische Hochzeits-Sonnenuhr


aus Moskau

Ich freue mich sehr, hier die sehr ungewöhnliche Geschichte einer neuen belgischen Sonnenuhr erzählen zu dürfen!

Aleksandr W Boldyrev aus Moskau hat sie für ein US-amerikanisch - belgisches Hochzeitspaar geschaffen. Die Sendung des 165 kg schweren Guts von Rußland nach Belgien erwies sich als richtige Odyssee – nichts für schwache Nerven…

Aleksandr W Boldyrev
wrote this:

”Before delivering the whole set to Belgium I showed it at the 12-th International Watch Exhibition in the centre of Moscow. Every participant of the exhibition has written a few words of greetings to newly marring pair…

It was a very difficult job to get the Ministry of Culture permission and to go through the customs formalities.”

But these were not the only difficulties to get this sundial save from Russia to Belgium! … RK

Und hier ist nun das Prachtstück!

Installation locality: 50° 41´ 44´´N; 5° 47´ 32´´ E.
Installation address: 448 Longbroux  Charneux 4654 Belgium.
Emily birth locality: California, US: 37°51´22´´ N; 122° 15´26´´ W.
Time of wedding: 13:30.
Day of wedding: August 6.

Don’t miss to have a closer look at this link:


Text taken from the homepage of Alexandr W Boldyrev:

“The instrument is a wedding gift to Emily (Berkeley, Ca) and Rene (Belgium). They have met each other in their childhood in a scout’s camp. In August, 2010 they have got married and have taken up a new home in a small farm in the east part of Belgium. The farm name is "Carpe diem".

The sundial is installed in the farm and counts years and hours of happy life. The device has 4 scales measuring true and mean time on the meridian of Carpe diem farm and on the meridian of Berkeley - the Emily’s homeland. 11 time zones isn't an obstacle for love. The world is one under the sun.”
