Game Clocks

The first recorded chess tournament was held in London, 1851 and it wasn't long before serious games began to take intolerably long which led to the introduction of mechanical clocks in 1867 to restrict the time between moves. A single clock proved unwieldy and eventually the "Veenhoff double-faced push-button" clock appeared in 1900 and went on to become the defacto standard for chess and other serious board games such as Go and Draughts. A typical Chess tournament clock allowance is fifteen moves per hour.

All the clocks available below are mechanical, are manufactured to competition standard and are simple to use for all levels of play.
