Price: TBD, currently $103 on eBay
I just found this clock on eBay from a new seller, Pixeldesign2009. It is based on a Russian IN-8-2 tube and has a built in time base. No more information is provided via the auction other than it has a "built in RTC clock." I am guessing that it is just an inexpensive mechanism as precision does not seem to be the focus of this device. Additionally, based on the description, this appears to be 24-hour mode only. Lastly, no information is given on whether this is a directly driven display or multiplexed.
With all of that said, this could be a nice addition to any collection. The tubes are pretty small and while no dimensions are given, I am guessing the clock is no wider than 6 to 8 inches. The case appears to be a black plastic and does not appear to be a kit of any kind. For $100, this isn't a bad deal.
I contacted the seller via eBay and asked for more information on this device. The following information was provided:

Jeff Thomas has another great nixie clock for sale on eBay. It is a $299 GPS 6-digit nixie clock that is encased in a clear arcrylic enclosure. I have a Nixichron by him and it is easily one of the best designed clocks I own. After reading the manual, this clock appears to have the same or a very similar setup. The GPS feature is a very nice touch. If you have ever had a power outage you will appreciate not having to reset this device.
From the auction:
Now go buy it before I do!

This clock is based on a Metric A/S frequency counter and apparently this unit as part of a remote display. I contacted Mikkel to learn more about the original unit but sadly, I have not been able to find any of these on ebay, surplus sites, etc. Regardless, I really liked the design and thought it was fitting to add to this site. I really like his construction and of the home made clocks I've seen, the wiring and PCB on this is probably one of the cleanest.
If you happen to have one of these sitting around, be sure to let me know!

Ever since I purchased my first numitron clock, I've been wanting to build a larger, 6 digit version using end view tubes. I found the perfect kit by Richard White but the only problem was that I needed an enclosure. While doing my normal research, I found the perfect host:
