    FrankHelwig is right. Is a Chavet Chess. This set is very popular and FIDE aproved in 80-90. LInares Tournaments and Anand-Kasparov are playng with this same set.

    Today is "Morize-Chavet" and you can find them in ebay fr.

    Is not easy to find the set that you want , because Morize has made a similar new one with a slightly different Queen.

    About Kasparov-Karpov WCC chess sets: dificult is to find a rare model of a Spanish chess Pieces used in Sevilla. I have this set, and what a set! A pearl in my collection

    I'm looking for near identical pieces used in top GM events nowadays.

    Example link: http://tinyurl.com/a5guapv

    Why are such pieces so difficult to find and afford but at the same time very easy for the tournament organizers to get exactly same set every single time.

    5xadrezmemoria7 - do you know any online stores that have similar pieces.

    It's a shame Chavet doesn't make the same style anymore. I have both their current design and the old one, and much prefer the old one...

    Here's the early 90s design:

    And here's the current design:

    Those are DGT pieces (specifically, the DGT TImeless set) that DGT sells along with their electronic boards. You can find them on the DGT site.

    Here's a better view at the differences between the old and new Chavet design (mostly, different Queen, King and Bishop).

    The above-mentioned pieces do have like i said different appearance than what DGT sell nowadays. The king is most noteworthy with this again nickname "chubby" and rounded edges at neck height.

    Both types are made by DGT. In fact, both can be seen in that same Norway tournament on different boards. You can always contact DGT on their web site to inquire about the difference.

    I have tried contacting DGT. 

    My question was: Is there any indications that new DGT Chessmen will be available for sale in the near future. Or is DGT satisfied enough with the current assortments. 

    And their reply was:

    "We are not planning in distributing the new Chessmen. What I tried to write is, that other companies buy the technology from us and built their own e-chesspieces.

    We are satisfied with our assortment and do not plan to expand on this. Be aware that we need to buy more than 1 set of Chess Pieces equipped to become an e-pieces"

    "When we decide to broaden/change the design, we will note your suggestion."

    I had a little trouble understanding his english, but it basically sounds like 3rd party companies can now make their own e-pieces for the DGT board. Perhaps various countries buy the cheapest offerings, and maybe that's why there was a mix of the different sets in that Norway tournament.

    Might be hard to identify the names of the third party companies. Also we have to account that these particular chessmen i mentioned is commonly seen the last 12 years in my country on GM levels.

    Maybe the only reasonable way is to reask DGT.
