The observation of the sun's course is the most original manner of determining time. For the longest time, mechanical pocket watches were expensive and prone to failure. Therefore, foldable and portable sundials remained everyday timekeepers until around 1800. Furthermore, they were also indispensable for setting clocks.

The Reinmann family was one of Nuremberg's most famous compass-making families. Nine family members were compass makers. Many sundials are still known from the compass maker Paul Reinmann. These are on exhibit in the international museums of Oxford, London and Chicago, and one of them is also on exhibit in the Germanic National Museum in Nuremberg.
