The top is one of humanity's oldest and most ubiquitous gizmos. From as far east as Japan to as far west as the California workshop of Prometheus Lights and dating back centuries - even before recorded history - tops have been a part of our evolution and have remained a fascination and curiosity. And that's how the Lambda Top came to be. With a solid brass construction and hollow center shaft, the Lambda is one of the most precise tops ever made - proving it can walk the walk with spin times of over 10 minutes - and it was the first ruby-tipped top ever made.
