Nixie Radian

495.00

As seen on Kickstarter!

This design uses genuine vintage nixie tubes to create a timepiece that is both striking and simple.  The center is carved from a solid block of hardwood cherry, engraved and painted with digits, and hand-finished to a soft shine.

It is read just like any other analog clock or watch.  The fully lit tube is the "long hand" which shows the minutes, and the half lit tube is the "short hand" which shows the hours.  There are also a few different ticking animations (two of which can be seen in the video above).  Or, if you prefer, the clock can show only the hour and minute hands with no other movement.  Setting the time and display is done with two buttons on the back.

The clock uses vintage IN-9 Nixie Tubes.  These are "bargraph" style, meaning the length of the glowing section is proportional to the current flowing through them.  All of the tubes used are New Old Stock, which is a fancy way of saying that they were made (far) in the past but have never been used before.  They should last in the Nixie Radian for many years.

The clock hangs just like a picture.  It weighs less than 1lb and has a mounting hole to place it over a single nail.  The attached cord is 7' long and can hang straight down the wall.  That cord plugs into the end of the DC adapter cord, which is 5'+ on its own, so you can easily reach the nearest outlet.

 

Since each clock is made to order, please allow 6-8 weeks for creation.
