The Chronos GX Digital Chess Clock with Push Button Beige is a new blitz version--just like the Chronos Digital Chess Clock with 2 LCD screens-yet smaller in size. This newest chess clock in the lineup from Chronos, the maker of some of the most prestigious chess timers in America, is sure to be a favorite of fine chess clock users everywhere.
It has 4 preset blitz times, 8 preset tournament controls, move counter, a new GO! time setting, and many other adjustments. It is also fully customizable and can have any delay or increment time as well--perfect for chess tournaments. It comes with a simplified Chronos manual and a 1 year warranty.
I chose this version over the "touch" one because I've always hot my button with a piece after capture and the touch version doesn't work unless you touch the sensor with your finger. I'm very happy with my choice.The clock is VERY well made with a metal casing and the time is easily read even at an angle, unlike a lot of cheaper digital clocks.Clock functions are easy to set for simple games but not so much for more complicated time limits. It would be nice of there was a sticker on the underside with a "cheat sheet" of how to get to the different time settings. I found the single-sheet instructions nearly worthless but there are videos on YouTube that are much easier to understand.All things considered the Chronos' reputation for quality is well deserved and I highly recommend it.
Fine clock with metal casing and does the job. Why not 5 stars? Poor instruction booklet. This is a problem with digital clocks in general---learning how to set them. Get it together guys! Good service from wholesale and the best prices. Clock delivered way ahead of scheduled date.
