As it’s widely known, chess clocks are aimed at keeping track of the overall time that takes each player of a chess match to make a move. One of its purposes is also ensuring that the players don’t delay the game too much. Chess timers are not designed only for chess but also any other two-player games where the participants make their moves in turn.
They are not as old as the game of chess. For the first time chess clocks were used in a chess tournament in London in 1883. Previously, they were also known as game clocks. Nowadays, they are a very important part of any chess tournament, they are also used by amateur players who love to create an air of professionalism and competition.

1) Increment (also known as Fischer and Bonus): This method implies adding a specific amount of time for each move, e.g., if a given increment is thirty seconds, it means that each of the players will receive additional thirty seconds for each move.
2) Bronstein Delay: In this case a certain amount of additional time is also granted to the players, but it does not have to be the maximum amount of time. It mainly depends on the exact amount of the delay time of the player.
3) Simple Delay or Countdown Delay (also known as the US Delay): This timing method means that the clock will wait for the delay period each move before the base time starts. E.g., if the delay time is 10 seconds, the clock will wait for 10 seconds each move before the base time begins to go down. This timing method is mathematically equivalent to the previous type of timing method and is commonplace in the US.
