The Timesaver is a real-time battery backed up clock designed for use with the A1000. Unusually the clock is connected between the keyboard and the A1000. Note, the picture shows the insides of the unit, however it was supplied in a closed plastic case. Apparently two versions exist, one for US-type keyboards and the other for German-type keyboards because they used different clock rates.
