A well-worn Chronos clock

The Chronos Digital Game Clock is an electronic timer used for playing chess, Go and Shogi.

[1] It is manufactured by DCI of Mountain View, California, and is a popular clock for blitz chess games played over-the-board.[2] It is composed of a digital logic board, housed in a metal casing with two LCDs and three buttons: one used to turn the clock on and change the mode, and two used during play to signal the end of a turn.[3]
