In the 16th century Galileo Galilei discovered the principle that drives this unique thermometer. As a liquid's temperature increases, its buoyancy decreases. These attractive thermometers are sealed, rugged, high-quality glass tubes. Each handmade floater is massed to within 0.002 g to allow an accuracy of ±0.1° F. Temperature is read by noting the tag on the lowest of the floating temperature floaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work of Art This thermometer is a real work of art - pleasing to the eye and uniquely in its own class. Truly, Galileo was ahead of his time - it seems to be very accurate as well as beautiful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless! 100 degree bobble is on top! Very disappointing...the 100 degree bobble was put in on the top of all of the others so the lower temp bobbles can't rise. No way to fix it. Fluid is also light blue, not clear and it wasn't filled to the top. Garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and simple I bought this product as a gift for my father. I was not disappointed. It is beautifully made and very simple to use and makes a great conversation piece or decorative addition. I only had it in my home a few days so I can't really speak to it's accuracy, but it seemed to be working well while it was here.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great conversation piece, not much else... I bought this product and I perhaps had loftier goals than I should have. It's a very nice looking piece and it works fine. I intended for my 6th grade students to be as excited about it as I was, but they just weren't. I taught them how to use it, and there was excitement for about two days. After that, interest waned. It still makes a nice conversation piece in the classroom, but it was a little expensive for just being a conversation piece.
