Electromechanical Nixie Clock

 

Electromechanical Nixie Clock

Most nixie clock use a microprocessor and a crystal to keep the time.  Some use the mains 50/60Hz as a reference.  Even fewer use ring counters (like the Nixie Neon clock) or dekatron counters for calculating the time.  This clock - is purely electromechanical; I have never seen a nixie clock design like this before.  That's right, this device uses mechanical stepper relays and a motor to calculate the time passed.  The author cites mechanical wear as a problem, but I have to imagine that noise would be one other draw back.  Don't misunderstand me - this thing is cool
