Chess Clock AM 1401 is a model which is due to its reliability intended primarily for professionals. Acceptable price allows chess amateurs and enthusiasts to enjoy its capabilities. This model, unlike the AM1401c doesn’t have communication with digital chessboards. That is the only difference between these two models. All of the installed equipment is identical in both models.
The clock is made from the highest quality components that can be found on the market. More about the installed components you can see on page “Equipment“.
Basic features of the new digital chess clock "Chess-plus" and what makes it the best of all chess clocks that are currently in offer is:
- "Chess-pluss" is a wooden clock with wooden buckets (unlike others - plastic), high-quality workmanship.
- It is the simplest for use, simplier then the already known watches.
- The possibility of using all types and periods of the game is built in the hour.
- Precision in timekeeping with extremely low battery power. With two AA batteries can operate continuously for 18 months.
- Complies with all FIDE rules of chess.
- Large display with diagonal length of over 5 " with anti-reflex glass and clear visibility of numbers, which can be seen in the photographs (no shadows, although taken with flash).
What is new and advantages over the current:
- The existence of a "zero" mode with memory that records the last time before disconnection, even accidental disconnection
- illegal moves are simple to correct, without the possibility of errors and without the option of a player to be damaged
- The possibility of programming modes with or without counting strokes. So far the mostly used method was the one where clock adds time after having played 40 moves. However, on more and more international competitions, time is added when the flag of first player falls. This clock has both possibilities.
- The possibility of programming with or without blocking time when "flag falls." The judge can choose what happens when a player’s flag falls. The first possibility is that the clock is blocked, and the other is that time still runs for the player whose flag did not fall. This clock allows such a choice.
- Transition to the next game or mode without turning off. The clock does not have to be turned on and off constantly. Transition to the next game is done by combining of two buttons.
