Hi Everyone,

Just found this forum. I picked up the below desk clock today thinking it was a nixie tube clock, however the display is not orange. More like a incandescent light bulb color...

It is made by a company called CEI (Caringella Electronics Inc.). Model DDC-1

Does anyone know anything about it?

The seconds tubes look burned out.

Thanks,

Chris

Hello -
The type of tube is called a numitron - a few companies made them Apollo / RCA. The bad new is that the filaments burn out but you can find replacements pretty easily on eBay if you're patient.

As far as the clock itself - I've never seen one like that. Good find!

Also - the chart on this page should help find replacements:

Thank you very much for the information.

I found the clock at a swap meet for $10.00 yesterday.

I think I am going to change the tubes out and find a new place on my desk at work for it.

Thanks again

Chris
