German Sundial seen in the Deutsches Museum in Munich, Germany
This sundial has a odd-shaped gnomon that completely compensates for the equation of time. The gnomon must be changed twice a year after (I think) the solstices.

The website (in German) at says where some such dials are, but does not have any more information.
