Even though watches and clocks function necessarily for keeping track of time, experiments with the designs and functions of clocks still continue. Nixie VFD tube clock from Vintage Tube Clocks is one such fine example of a new take on clocks through material and design. This gorgeous clock is a treat for sci-fi fanatics as its design elements evoke an industrial and steampunk vibe.
Ukraine-based Evgeny Zvezdovskiy creates stunning nixie clocks that he sells on his Etsy shop, Vintage Tube Clocks. His Nixie VFD tube clock is a retro-modern table clock, featuring a new indicator, from old stock. The IV-18 vacuum fluorescent tube that rests at its center, has a lifetime of a least 10,000 hours.
Built into a transparent acrylic enclosure, the clock flaunts its circuits from both front and rear, wrapped in a stainless steel frame. The glowing center of the clock displays the time or date in a cool blue-green color.
This beautiful clock brings a fragment of history inside your house with its robust vintage gears. The soft and warm glow of the Nixie tubes allows you to keep it in your bedroom without interfering with your sleep and give a classy touch to space.
Nixie VFD Tube Clock functions as a clock, calendar and alarm. It has two formats for time display, 20 different effects for displaying time and date, auto-brightness adjustment depending on exterior lighting, and a built-in battery socket for proper time backup during a power outage.
Bringing the nixie element from the early 20th century, Zvezdovskiy makes these beautiful pieces to adorn your house with a vintage vibe. Available for $199, this clock is assembled by hand and tested before shipping.
