Here we have a beautiful piece I just created and am very proud to show you. With this unit, I was aiming for the vintage /steampunk look and I think I have met both styles half way. I hope you agree, it looks pretty darn cool !!

Constructed of aluminium, brass and steel throughout. The unit measures - Base plate dims L140mm/5.5 inches x W80mm/3 1/4 inches with actuating arm W113mm/4.5inches

The timers are designed to be actuated either at the same time, by pressing the centre T bar or independently of one another.

The clock, if desired can be fixed to your car by either using the corner screws or there is a a hole behind each timer with which a screw can pass. If you wish to display the timer on a desk then it simply rests on the stand I have made for it and is included.

I sell this unit complete with two vintage stopwatches. However, should you wish to fit your own then I have designed adjustability into the unit. You will see that the two lower bobbins for each clock are fitted in a slot. The screw at the rear can be loosened making the fitting of larger or smaller diameter timers easy. The press buttons running through the T bar are threaded so you would unscrew or screw in to balance out the buttons to just make contact with the new clock winder. You could even fit a pocket watch to this unit, though then of course the chosen sides actuator will not operate as such. however the other side will still be operable.

Units are engraved with my CED logo ( Carl Evans Design ) and each unit is individually numbered. The unit comes in its own custom box .

Designed and made at GGB HQ in the United Kingdom, this rally timer is completely unique and original in every way. You will not find anything like it !

Thank you. I truly hope you like RT1


The timers supplied with RT1 are of vintage. At time of shipping each timer will be working of course. However, I do not provide any warranty on the timers. They are sourced from different places and I do not know their service history.

Fitting to a vehicle - I have no control over how you fit this unit to a vehicle. I have provided two methods of fitting to a car. With corner bolts or with just two screws that run through the base plate behind the timers. You will need to figure out the best method for your application. This timer is in no way meant to be classed as a serious timer for rallies etc. It is more a working show piece to fit in either your classic or sit on your desk.

The timers you recieve will not be exactly as shown here ( these are mine )  I will always aim to fit British made Smiths timers however due to diiffering designs of Smiths stopwatches over the years they may come to you slighlty differant to as shown.

Due to the nature of my opening and closed catch up schedule, it is impossible for me to stick to a rigid lead time. 

Orders typicaly come through in a three day open phase making it impossible for me to then get all those orders out at a specific lead time.

I try my very best to get goods out within a couple of weeks but enevitably lead times do run over.


At checkout there is a tick box. Ticking this box means you have read and understood this lead time.  


Depending on what is in front of your order this lead time may fluctuate either way a little so please be aware of this when placing an order. 

Please also note,  for all GGB BESPOKE goods the green IN STOCK tick only means I have materials to make up your order.


When I have reached capacity and to reduce backlogs I will close off orders to all bespoke made goods but you will then have the option to be notified when I 're-stock'


Lead time does not affect 'off the shelf' items such as Phoenix NATO's and tooling which will go at the next postal run from order date   

Emails : I get a lot of emails which I struggle to keep on top of sometimes. I do try and answer in a timely manner but please give me a nudge again if I do not respond within a few days.

Wrist measuring guide
When measuring the wrist for your wrist size it is important to get this as accurate as you can to help save any issues with fit.

Please measure the wrist with the tape measure touching all the way around the wrist but not pulled too tightly.

Please do not be tempted to add any to the finished length. I build the straps around a metal wrist/Jig that I set to the wrist size you give me.

Lug-to-Lug explained

Simply measure from the centre of one spring bar or tube, across the watch (north to south) to the centre of the other spring bar or tube. This is your Lug-to-Lug measurement.

Strap Adjustment

Each gasgasbones strap is made to your wrist size. I incorporate around 10-15mm of adjustment in each strap for use between warmer and cooler days.
