As of March 18, 2022. Russia will no longer export tubes made in Russia.This almost makes Nixie tubes unattainable and certainly more expensive. There are a lot of people who are making life difficult for the rest of us. He star of this clock is a Vintage Fischer 100+ year old Milli Ammeter with a rgb in front of the meter & many R GB's inside the tube to add never Ending Color! A 115 year old knife switch controls the auxiliary lighting.
If you are looking for true steampunk this is it. Copper, brass, vintage meter & knife switch. Fischer milliampere meters are super old and rare. In all the time I've been building clocks this is the first one I've had. The knife switch comes from a decommissioned dam.The case is a repurposed wine box. Handmade items are not perfect and this is no exception. Examine the photos carefully before purchasing. The copper elements of this clock are all handmade not machined. If you want an honest, handmade, one of a kind clock then this is for you. I say this because of a nitpicking customer I just had who didn't seem to be able to understand this. There is a YouTube video. Search Greg Denny "Ultra Steampunk Clock" if you would want to see the clock in action. Back to my normal introduction. Thank you for taking the time to consider my product. I've had an interesting life full of hobbies like wood carving, blacksmithing and copper work that is now expressed I'm my making Nixie clocks. I build a high quality kit designed in Switzerland and have sourced NOS tubes.
With the artistic help of my wife staining and beautifying the enclosures we now have a quality product that I would like to own and that I can sell with confidence. You can have a clock hand built in the USA from parts that are decades old but are new and being utilized for the first time in their lives.The clock has a battery backup that keeps time to + or - 1 minute a year. However from my observations I would say it is much more accurate than that. This is coming from a person who is a perfectionist and has CDO (that's OCD but in alphabetical order).
That level of obsessive precision goes into the building of your clock. The design is a 6 digit display that every minute if you wish will display the date for 5 seconds and then scroll back to the time. The only word that works for a description is "COOL".
All the functions are set with one simple button. There are too many variations to describe here but be assured you can have this clock Your Way. Tube life is lengthened by a blanking mode which you set when you are away and also an Anti Cathode Poisoning Feature that keeps the filaments clean and adds to the overall life of the tubes. Inspired by the SteamPunk movement I've incorporated elements of copper and brass all handmade and unique to each clock.
Each clock is a work of joy. I find myself watching the clock instead of TV. Never had the passage of time been so fun.
We hope you will join our happy family of nixie owners. The size is 15" wide by 9" deep by 13 tall. Again thank you for your consideration.
