DGT2010, the official chess clock of the World Chess Federation FIDE.
The DGT2010 was introduced in 2007 and received the status of "Official FIDE Chess Clock" in June 2008 after tests by four top-level arbiters concluded that the clock is in full accordance with all FIDE rules and regulations.
The DGT2010 is suitable for use with many games and it has Japanese and Canadian Byo-yomi settings for the game Go or Baduk.
Some features of the DGT2010 were changed in November 2010 to comply with popular timing systems.
The main differences between the new model DGT2010 (sometimes called DGT2010SG - Second Generation) and the previous version are:
- The front buttons are dark blue instead of red;
- For every manual option, the last setting is automatically saved. Even after switching off the timer or using other options this setting is saved;
- Options for Scrabble™ are added;
- Bronstein delay with multiple time controls can be set;
- In Canadian Byo-yomi the extra time can be added automatically after the required number of moves;
- Some preset times were amended to more popular settings;
For detailed information about the differences of the new model DGT 2010 with respect to the previous version please see this article.

If you play competitively you probably use one of these clocks. They are sturdy & have a huge range of timing options (although programming it is complex)
DGT 2010s Speak for themselves.

Why buy anything else? These are the best bang per buck clocks on the market. FIDE approved and quite capable of serving other Formats. There is no need to go further, this Chess clock is the standard. I only wish it had a Death Ray for Clock Slappers. No one better belt my new Clock like its the Heavy bag. (Pssst,tell them the Arbiter brought it, or it has an instant time loss penalty circuit for inconsiderate and unnecessarily heavy hands like the Tilt mechanism on a pinball machine!).
