Hi Dennis,There's an interesting auction item on eBay right now: one of the clocks used during the Capablanca-Alekhine '27 match in Buenos Aires. Currently at 9 grand with 7 days to go until the hammer falls. Should be an astonishing final price. Great pictures of the equipment if you're a geek for the history of the game, like me :) bye, Robert
