Bobby Fischer Chess Clock - Powered by DGT
In honor of Bobby Fischer, we are happy to bring you the Bobby Fischer Digital Chess Clock, Powered by DGT. It is the only one like it on the market in a deep blue and black color.
The DGT North American was developed in cooperation with the United States Chess Federation for the US market, but later also released on to the global market.
The Delay option was made to suit US custom and is different from FIDE clocks.
All other options are according to FIDE rules. See the manual for more detailed information.
To compare the options between DGT NA and DGT 2010 please see this link to our frequently asked questions section.
The Bobby Fischer clock is fantastic for scholastic chess. I use it in class and for scholastic tournaments. This is the standard and I see it all over at competitions and even in the park for casual timed games. Worth the cost, just make sure to pick up a few at a time since shipping can be rather expensive.
I purchased the clock to honor Bobby Fischer. It seems so long ago now, but one should add the increment (AKA bonus or add-back) to Fischer’s contribution to chess. Fischer applied for the patent in 1998. Now it is the preferred time control used all over the world and in FIDE events in particular. Choose from a number of preset time controls or create your own and save it. I like the feel of the improved lever mechanism of this DGT model. I expect many years of rugged use with it, from standard time controls to blitz. Many thanks to Shelby Lohrman (the owner of ACE) for adding a personal touch to ensure everything about my purchase was in order. Great customer service. Thank you!
