I first saw this clock come across the NEONIXIE-L message board in mid August. From the second I saw this clock I knew I had to feature it here. Most nixie clocks take a definite shape: a brick for a base and side view tubes mounted vertically on top. Not this one. End-view tubes are significantly less common and I have never seen a clock that has sixteen tubes (GN4 by ITT).
As much as I like the display portion of this clock, it is worth mentioning the quality of the build. The aluminum chassis looks like something HP would have made. The device looks like it belongs in some laboratory; I love it.
Topping off the features is a remote LCD display that also displays the date and time.
