Chronos II

Over the past fortnight or so, the boys at Hyde Park chess have been testing a new digital chess clock - Chronos II. This cost one of our members a small fortune, about A$200. But my, what an impressive piece of equipment. It has a very robust build - nearly all metallic. So, you don't get that nagging feeling that you might break the thing with each bang on the clock. And this is thanks to the touch sensor technology instead of the traditional 'lever' mechanism.

The timing appears to be accurate and, most of all, the clock is very easy to reset after each game. The general opinion so far is that we definitely love this clock. If you're looking for an alternative to the plasticky DGT and want a clock for blitz and rapid - then this could be the clock for you.
