THE ACCURASPEED WATCH.
Sporting motorists who take part in competition work soon realise the absolute necessity for a very accurate timepiece, not only for gauging the performance of their own motor cycles or cars, but also for checking the times of other competitors, or for observing speed trials. During the recent J.C.C. Reliability Trial at Brook lands we had the opportunity of testing the Accuraspeed
watch, which was carried throughout the trial and proved most useful for the purpose of checking the famous Ten Mile Limit on that occasion. The instrument is very well finished, and has a strong case, so that it is not likely to become easily damaged,
even if submitted to rough usage and quite apart from the remarkable accuracy of the stop watch, the timepiece keeps splendid. time for ordinary purposes. Among its many uses may be mentioned that of checking the speedometer of a car or motor cycle, over
a measured distance, and as the stop watch hand moves over the dial graduated in one-fifth seconds most accurate results can be recorded.
The Accuraspeed Watch is obtainable from Spikins from Dent, at 29 The Broadway, Ealing, and Mr. Spikins, it will be remembered, is well-known for his keenness in motor competitions.
