Garde Digital Chess Clocks

Not only does GARDE manufacture the world’s best mechanical clock, but they also have a superb digital version. The dimensions are:  8 5/8″ long x 4-3/4” high x 2-1/4” deep, with the clock face at 2-1/2” in diameter. The LCD display is viewable at the acute angle of 160 degrees – perfect for the Tournament Director peering over the crowd in a time scramble!

There are 4 simple buttons on the base of the clock which control its functionality. Up to 20 standard settings (e.g. Standard, Fischer, Bronstein, F.I.D.E.) are pre-programmed – it is quite simple to understand after spending a few minutes going over the various settings and features. The instructions on the back of the clock summarize the 20 standard settings – the only drawback being that you need either a magnifying glass or better than 20/20 eyesight to read the fine print! This fine wooden contemporary clock is angled back 10 degrees from vertical for ease of view.

For the casual player or tournament player who wants to play with class, this is certainly the most attractive digital chess clock on the market.
