The first stage of our known chess clock was the "SchachTimer" in 2000. The first "black" version was developed further in 2002 to the "ChessTimer Silver". The Cooperation with the European Chess Union (ECU) resulted in a fast introduction into European chess.
Meanwhile this electronic chess clock has been used successfully in over 150 important national and international chess tournaments and has there proved to be of value.

Since the number of tournaments using the "Silver" has increased enormously since 2009 we do not want to name them here explicitely.
For further increase of ability and marketing the production and the selling of the "ChessTimer Silver" were transfered to the independent company "EuroChessInternational" ECI in 2004.
In 2007 the "Silver" received the title "in full accordance with rules and regulations" by the FIDE. In 2009 we developped the "Silver plus" being able to output data and thus allowing an electronic transmission of chess games with the iChess system. In 2010 a speeking "chess clock" followed by help of a Chess Voice for the "Silver plus" after a special proposal by the International Blind Chess Association (IBCA).
In 2013 we started redesigning the Silver and finally this year we will launch the new old Silver with an updated set of preset modes and the proven of value software.
