My boyfriend has an old beige/white Chronos II that needs repair. I've decided that perhaps purchasing a new clock for his birthday would be a better idea than my original idea (a chess coffee table book...really for me to improve the apartment decor!). But now after looking around I see it is very hard to acquire the Touch Chronos II. Can anyone recommend a suitable replacement? Hopefully one that complies with FIDE regulations and has tactile buttons.

  • Also: OR should I splurge on the the one listing of the Chronos II on eBay ($299 obo)?! Aug 1, 2020 at 21:00
