The chess clock adds an important element to the game of chess - it rewards quick decisions and penalizes slow play. Nearly all chess tournaments now use chess clocks to regulate the pace of play and they are being used more and more even in the casual game at home.

Improve your decision making and speed up your game by adding a chess clock!
Chess clocks are divided into two general categories, the analog chess clock with two clock faces, one for each player, and the digital chess clock which usualy has two LED displays. Surprisingly, old fashion analog chess clocks continue to be very popular, primarily because they are easy to use and are very affordable. The digital chess clock offers precision, timing options, and other useful features that analog clocks simply can't provide. Digital clocks tend to be a little more expensive but there are some very good clocks at prices comparable to analog clocks.
