    OnTheDash <http://www.onthedash.com/> was founded to record and provide information about the dashboard timers although it is mainly known for Heuer wrist chronographs now. A post to the discussion forum should elicit some information. There is an accompanying sales forum and that would be a good place to advertise. A search for Monte Carlo threw up a few for sale starting for a few hundred USD going into some thousands for pairs like yours. It's not a big market so you may have to wait for someone prepared to give you a good price. My rallying days ended over 40 years ago and I would have loved to have used a set of clocks like that!

    Many thanks, I did find them, their forum looked like a nightmare to post in lol. I found the guy that runs it on facebook (via his link on the site) and messaged him, so might hear something back.

    The Master Time is the valuable one as a piece, but as a pair on a Heuer signed backing plate then you will be looking for good strong money.

    Hard to value as not often available, but highly desirable, especially for anyone restoring a classic car (Porsches especially). Maybe $4-6k or more would be possible.

    Post on the chronotrader forum (onthedash) and state every detail you can find and the pictures and invite people to make you an offer above X amount. Highest offer over the next few weeks wins.

    If you’re looking for the most, keep doing your checks and getting valuations from various people. Then take a decision if it’s worth getting the stopwatch sorted or not. Don’t rush it would be my suggestion.....or I’ll give you a few dollars and save you the headaches ::bleh::

    I for one wouldn’t have these going anywhere and would get a leather plinth made to hold them at 30-45 degrees and keep it as a desk clock. They’re lovely.

    Good luck.
