This watch was inspired the Jeff Thomas Nixie Watch. It uses an entirely different design - tubes and power supply.  It looks a little more like a watch than the other design but I prefer the clear plastic case on the other one.  Regardless, this is an amazing feat of engineering.  I'd love to own one of these.


The Cathode Corner Nixie Watch displays the time on nixie tubes, which are quaint neon display tubes once used in calculators in the dawn of recorded history (1969). It is a two-digit wristwatch designed for everyday use, being water-resistant and rugged.

The watch requires no button pushing to operate - it shows the hours, minutes and seconds in sequence at the flick of the wrist.
