Serbianmade and quiet–running official 1990 Olympiad mechanical analogue chess clock with 15 second increment flag for last minute in beech wood case

Gambit Chess Supplies takes time seriously and it would be almost inconceivable for the INSA not to be represented among the top mechanical analogue chess clocks in the world. Were chess clocks cars then the INSA very much would be a “hot hatch” sports model. Conceived and produced in Belgrade especially for the 29th Chess Olympiad held in Novi Sad 1990, the INSA remains in production to the delight of traditionalists and has stood the test of time for over 30 years. It is one of the quietest mechanical analogue chess clocks due to its precision mechanism and considered design details including large and well–placed buttons that are less audible than those of many other chess clocks. The clear dials make time assessment effortless while the innovative flag handles time scrambles elegantly with 15 second increments for the last minute.

Please note that starting in the last decade of the previous century electronic digital chess clocks began to supplant mechanical analogue chess clocks for formal tournament and match play. While the former generally are now a requirement for competitive chess the latter are still appreciated and many keen chess players with a sense of history will acquire both and select a particular model of either type to suit their mood and the occasion.
