Re: Heuer Monte Carlo rally timer in unusual box/setup

: I’m curious if anyone can shed some light on what this watch may
: have been setup this way for? Lots of input and guesses are
: steering me towards nautical/aeronautical application possibly.
: Also, is the watchbutself an earlier Heuer (60s to 70s)? The box
: is definitely a crude/home made type box and the armed hinge
: clips into holes on either sides of the mount plate.
: Thanks in advance. I’m just curious what this may have been used
: for.

What about a laboratory or testing environment? Seems a little flimsy for a ship not to mention a plane.
