Information requested on vintage chess clocks "Click" to Login or Register 
IHC Life Member

Chess clocks usually have two movements, with some mechanism (sometimes Rube Goldberg) which makes one run while the other is stopped.

A friend is interested in really old chess clocks.
We are collaborating on re-creating a chess clock that used two small pendulum clocks on a teeter-totter. (he has the clock, I'm 3D Printing the base and teeter-totter).


He has one that "is two pocket watches modified for the purpose." No markings, and no cases. The back of the clock says "E.M SCHUTZE".

any information welcome!
