All chess players that plan to compete in regulated chess tournaments or a chess club should own a chess clock. Chess clocks are integral to competitive chess. You should own a chess clock that you are comfortable setting, that performs well, and has the timing features for your style of play.
From years of tournament experience at the national and scholastic level, we understand what timers to offer. Many are available, but a few stand out.
Premium Digital Chess Clocks
The premier chess clock is the Chronos Digital Chess Clock. Performance, features, recognition, simplicity... with USA quality and durability. Chess players at all levels choose the chronos chess clock for its recognized and unparalleled performance. This clock is loved by youngsters just starting out to experts competing in US championships.
Can any chess timers count up? Yes. Rarely is this desirable in chess since chess timing is always countdown. However upcount timing is good for other applications! Take for example, the Ontario Curling Association. They use the Chronos Chess Clock to time their curling matches. This clock is very sturdy and has been selected for use in the courtroom and for payroll time tracking. When an employee clocks in, one button on the clock is pressed to start the time. The other side of the clock can keep track of break time or another type of work being performed.
Are there any chess clock manuals available for download?
Thanks so much for offering the chess training CD for the cost of shipping. I initially found your site through a google search when I was shopping for a Chronos chess clock for my son, Alec. Your site was the best price by far!! I thought well of your company before but now I think you guys are fantastic. We love chess in our home. - Christian
I appreciate being able to call you to find out about orders. I'm about to give the chess clock that just arrived yesterday to my nephew. Thanks for being so responsive. - Bob
I ordered a digital clock earlier this year and there was a problem with the order. I was very impressed by the way you were willing to take steps to "make good" on the order, including the plan to send another clock if need be. If this is your standard way of doing business, I see a long successful future for chesshouse. Keep up the good work! - Gary
Chess House has been amazing. My eight year old son is the chess player in our house. He has been thrilled with everything he has received from you. We are actually in the process of selecting items for our next order. Your customer service was excellent when we ordered our clocks, since I was concerned that the clock might not arrive for a tournament that we needed it for. Your representative put me at ease, and ensured that the clock arrived in time. Thank you for everything. - Noreen
