    Her you can see my old clock: anyone tell me anything about it?

    B-Lamberth, the Olympia was made by the West German company Jerger. They were "the industry standard" because of their durability and reliability. In 1971 the owner of the factory committed suicide and they stopped production. I believe they reopened the factory and continued production until 1990/91. You have a quality chess clock and if it's in good condition I've seen similar models going for $145/$150 on the web. I believe the one I have in the photograph is made by Jantar or the Moscow clock company No.2. These were standard issue in Soviet chess from the '30's-'60's.
