Heuer Rally-Master

From the instruction manual:

“Rally-Master.

Perfect timekeeping with the Rally-Master combination.

The combination of an 8 day Master-Time with a Monte-Carlo timer on the same back plate permits simultaneous reading of the following times:

Master-Time:
Time of day (official time) or Total elapsed time.

Monte-Carlo:
Time of trip or Elapsed time during a lap.

The Rally-Master is of invaluable help when timing check-points are to be passed free of penalties.

All Heuer dashboard instruments are designed to be mounted at no extra cost on double, triple or quadruple plates. Just order the combination desired.

Technical description of the Monte-Carlo and Auto-Rally timers:

Strong lever movement, 7 jewels, incabloc shock absorbers, unbreakable mainspring. Dials with luminous figures and hands. Case with turning bezel with luminous pointer (instruction for use on page 2).


Timing limit:
± 1/2 second p. hour or ± 6 seconds per 12 hours.

Running time:
24 hours.”

    With a set of time instruments like these and a Curta calculator, you were at the top of the game. Check eBay for what Curta’s are bringing these days. I think I sold mine for ten bucks. Then again, I was a starving graduate student. Gad…another youthful indiscretion has come back to bite me..

    I wish installing these in my car would make me a rally master 🙂

    Rallying was so popular back in the 60’s that both Sears and Abercrombie & Fitch sold these Heuer rally timers in their stores! I remember looking at these Heuers in the Vilem B. Haan catalog as a teenager, and wishing I had the hundred bucks to buy one. Another coveted item… a Halda Speedpilot rally computer. I finally got one of those a few years ago.

    I had a Monte Carlo left over from my rally days in my tool box for years -would not work and no jewlery store would work on it. When I finally restored my MGA I put it on the dash and it worked! Been working fine ever since – now if I could just fine a rally.
