Although standardised rules for governing international competitive chess had begun to take root by the mid 19th century, it was not until 1883 in England that a time apparatus akin to the modern chess clock was devised. This triumph of Victorian ingenuity solved the vexing issue of cogitating players taking exhorbitant amounts of time to make their moves. Henceforth the struggle would be fair sparing both players and spectators from mental and physical fatigue.
