FS: Dash Mounted Minerva 1/100th Second Chronos *PIC*

I got this pair from the family of the #5 Gillmore Special, which won the Indy 500 in 1935, driven by Kelly Petillo. These were NOT used in that car, but saw track time at Indy in later cars.

1940's or so pair of Minerva 1/100th second timers with dashmount. Dial has Autolite logo.

The chrono hand makes a full revolution every 3 seconds. The counter is good to 9 minutes (270 seconds, or 90 revolutions of the chrono hand).

Both watches run and reset crisply.

The dasmount has obviously seen some use and the crystal on the left side has a small crack at the 2.4 second mark.

The dials and crowns are in perfect condition.

Asking $1500 obo plus shipping and paypal fees.
