Up for auction is this set of authentic 1960s Heuer Sebring and Master Time dashboard timers. Mounted on a custom stainless steel display with strong double-sided adhesive, these timers are reported to be in good working order. Exhibiting beautiful patina, this set makes a perfect complement to the dashboard of any vintage automobile.
The Heuer Sebring (early 1960’s – notice the asymmetric pushers) is a split-second timer with the decimal dial. The Sebring uses an A. Schild 1564R, which is a seven jewel movement. The Sebring includes 1/5 second and 1/100-minute (decimal) recorder with split action, large hands registering 0 - 60 minutes, luminous dial and hands, 2 crown functions with time-out and locked return, control of split action by left side push button, rotating bezel and is shock-protected.
The Sebring split-second timer employs three hands. Two are overlaid runner hands that act together or individually. The third hand, tipped with an arrow, records up to 60 minutes of elapsed revolutions of the upper hands. The central plunger winds the timer and starts and stops the chronograph features; the first push of the left-hand plunger controls the split feature, which stops one of the superimposed center chrono runner hands. This allows the user to record split times or the time between mile markers without stopping the overall timing of the event. A second push has that split hand instantaneously catch up to the still-moving lower hand. After stopping the chronograph using the center push, the right plunger will reset all hands back to zero.
The Heuer Master Time is an early 1960’s 8-day precision clock with sweep second hand, luminous dial and hands. The dial has numerals 3-6-9-12 and is powered by an Arogno 28 (single-barrel) 15 jewel movement with rotating bezel and is shock-protected. The Master-Time employs hour, minute, and second hands. The central plunger winds and sets the clock. The Master Timer includes a hack feature for precise synchronization with official time signal, Show either exact time or day or, if started at 12, total elapsed time.
