Curta Calculators

Continental Holiday.  The American Travel Guide to Europe.  
New York, 1961.
I'd love to own one of these neat devices, invented in 1948.  See the Wikipedia entry.  "Small, Accurate, Sturdy.  A typical Swiss product."  Just like the Swiss people themselves!

The Curta Calculator was a mainstay on the car rallying front in the 1950s and early 60s. Reliable, robust and accurate. Combined with a Halda TripMaster front wheel odometer, a rally navigator felt infallible.
