This handy foldable pocket timer is the first chess clock with a random Chess960 generator. Simply press the 960 button and a randomly selected starting position will be shown on the display. Next to classical chess, Chess960 is the only other form of chess that is officially recognised by the World Chess Federation FIDE.
This idea of former World Chess Champion, Bobby Fischer, has been the most important improvement in chess in the last 500 years. In Chess960 every game starts from a different position and the chess pieces are placed in one of 960 different possible starting positions. Players are forced to creatively manoeuvre around the board from the get-go as any knowledge regarding the theory of chess openings are now useless.
The revolutionary DGT960 chess clock is a great gadget and the perfect gift item for any chess player.
