Copper Weather Station
The forecast looks sunny.
This weather station is both handsome and practical (that's an unbeatable combination, right?) and monitors both temperature and humidity using an easy-to-read 4-inch dial with a glass crystal face. Left unattended, the copper will attain a rich, dark patina in outdoor environments. The dial features Weems & Plath's exclusive fourth generation full range precision Japanese coil movement (FR4), and displays both Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. The 1-inch diameter hygrometer monitors the exterior humidity when the instrument is placed outdoors, and the swivel arm bracket can be mounted for just the right viewing angle on any window or post.
