Limited Edition 1996Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you! This goes out to all of our customers, present and past, that have helped us reach a momentous milestone. Chronotek turns 20 this year.

It’s a big deal and we couldn’t be more proud or grateful.  Only about 25% of all new small business startups make it to their 15th birthday.   Most get out-lived by their pet dogs. So 20 years is pretty special.

We want to celebrate with our awesome customers by playing a game.  Test your knowledge in our Chronotek Challenge.   Let the games begin!
