As an experienced player I must say this clock is not quite what I expected. The clock does have a cheaply made feel to it, which I could deal with, however it does not keep accurate time. If one was to set the time limit for a five minute game it actually takes 7 minutes. The clock is not easy to stop as better made clocks, as it continues ticking if you turn it vertical(to insure hand is set correctly). Many beginners would and should expect an instruction booklet which there is none. As I would like to return this item there is no information to help me do this.

This is NOT a chess timer, it has no second hand, and no indicator of when time runs out. I don't know what this is for, but do NOT buy it.

The item came with no instruction booklet and it really needs one. Maybe the seller wants to avoid this by saying that it is very simply to operate, but I disagree. Perhaps you cannot believe this, but since I received it I have been unable to stop it so I have the "tic tac" sound all the time (it does not have a mechanism to stop it, you just have to use your immagination and your fingers to press the buttons in such a way that they are even, but if you move it you have to start again). Besides I am not so sure about the versatility of the item and a booklet would help (you need to know really how it works). But forget what I say if you are very familiar with this kind of stuff, but if you are not, just keep this in mind.

In the other hand, this item is expensive after all; and the shipping and handling fee is also very expensive.

Good things? Well, I received emails all the time by the seller traking my package; and I have to say that the wooden case looks pretty. But I was dissapointed however.

Well, i am profesional chess player in my country and my Chess federation buy a order of this clock. But two years later the federation buy a new order of digital clock.
I bought a excalibur digital clock, is cheaper and easy to set, but if you are a romantic chess player buy this clock.

This is a nice clock, and will going for a long time, but i recomend digital chess clock, the only mechanical clock i have, was maden by Union Soviet.

I bought the timer as a gift for a budding chess player. I opened the completely plain white box without even any writing and found the timer... and that was it. No instructions on how it works, no contact information, no nothing. It looks ok but feels pretty cheap when working the buttons in the back. Well, the person I gave it to is still trying to figure out how to use it. Guess you get what you pay for.

The "wooden" aspect of this is deceiving. The backing is plastic and the unit itself is very light. It suits its purpose though and is nice to have for playing some casual speed chess games.
