I remember seeing / reading about a "trio" of Heathkits with matching cases and matching Panaplex displays. One member of the trio is the clock you linked to. Another is a digital thermometer. Right now my brain is farting and I can't remember what the third unit in the set does.

I just ordered 4 of these displays from Accutron's shop, so maybe before too long I'll have pictures of a new Panaplex clock to post. I'm not gonna promise when that might happen though! I have more ideas than free time right now.

Look into it later when the dust is clearing off the crater.

Heath also had a wind speed indicator using this technology.

Yep! That's what is was alright - thanks for de-farting my brain.

I went looking further and re-found the site where I saw the "trio". Bottom of the page: scan of a 1975 Heath catalog page.

I built and owned all 3 of these. The Sperry Tubes lasted ablout 3 years and then would start to fail. I replaced them many times. It was a beautiful display.
