The Heuer chess timer is an example of a very high quality and much sought-after mechanical chess clock. The clocks were Heuer branded but they were manufactured by a company called Looping. The Looping timers are known for their accuracy and excellent craftsmanship. Only a small number of the original Looping Chess Clocks were ever produced. Exact copies were sold by TAG Heuer as the Heuer Chess Champion. TAG Heuer did not produce these chess clocks themselves, they were sourced through Looping. Heuer was the sole importer of Looping clocks from 1968 to 1975. The Looping Company went bankrupt in 1980.
