why you should buy from weather scientific

Weems & Plath sets the standard for quality and accuracy with this brass/chrome stormglass gift display set, complete with an explanation plaque of the crystal weather formations. This predictable sidereal timepiece is based on the old idea of a glass tube to show weather patterns predicted by the observer. Suspended inside a sealed glass chamber, mysterious ingredients will precipitate in unique formations based on impending weather, revealing conditions that may lie ahead up to 48 hours in advance. A polished reservoir holds liquids with dramatic crystals and liquid suspension to show expected conditions and clear out possible reflections. Antique brass cylinder serves as the base that easily mounts onto to the wood and brass/chrome plaque, which can stand free or be wall-mounted. The plaque comes with mounting accessories to assist with freestanding or wall display options.

The wood and brass/chrome legend shows the five most common formations. The Weems Stormglass is a mysterious weather predictor that is sure to intrigue. Stormglass instruments have been in use since the 1750s. Admiral Fitzroy, the famous sailor and meteorologist, mounted an instrument similar to our stormglass on the mast of HMS Beagle as a storm warning instrument during his historic voyage with Darwin in the 1830s.

The premise of the Weems Stormglass is that changing weather affects the solubility of the mixture of chemicals in the sealed glass tube. Some believe that the changes in crystal structures have to do with the electromagnetic changes caused by weather and sun storms.

Based on a 1700s scientific theory, this beautiful, functional timepiece predicts weather up to 48-hours in advance and can be used 3 ways: 1) as a tabletop device that forecasts weather events for 48 hours; 2) a wall-mounted device that shows the pressure trend and predicts 24-hour weather for a specified location; and 3) as a yacht-mounted outdoor weather station.

The Weems & Plath Storm Glass 200 SET predicts weather up to 48 hours in advance, as well as spotting storms more than 3 days away. This set includes a sealed glass chamber that holds mysterious ingredients, a polished brass cylinder with wooden mounting plaque, and mounting accessories. This storm glass can warn of impending storm changes while also serving as a unique piece of décor when mounted on the wall.
