    Hi

    You could use 3 presettable U/D counters in the down mode. You preset
    them at 470 or whatever value and you clock them at the rate you want
    as soon as the preset enable input is released. If you need to display
    the counting, you have to add decoders and a display.
    Example ICs:
    Counters: CD4510
    Decoder driver: CD4511
