“BigTime II”, Remote Controlled Nixie Clock by Laurence Wilkins of the UK.
This clock is no longer made and has become a classic. It is sought after by collectors and enthusiasts alike. It is a rare find! It is being offered here with a complete set of 6 functioning IN-18 Nixie tubes, all original documentation, Remote Control, AC to DC power adapter, Slave Clock relay Option, and Temperature Sensor per my original purchase. The tubes alone are now selling for as much as $300 per set of 6! There’s still time before Christmas to grab one of the most unique Nixie clocks ever made. Good luck and good bidding!

Cool Numitron six digit clock. Uses MM5314 70's clock chip, vintage RCA DR2000/2010 Numitron tubes. The Numitrons were predecessors to LED displays, and are actually incandescent lights. This clock is built on a professionally made circuit board, and has fast set, slow set, hold buttons on the back, and a control to dim the display. As you can see in the pictures, it's visible in sunlight. These tubes were used in gas pumps outside because they don't get washed out by the sun. The clock is powered by a 9 volt AC wall wart (included) and can be set for 24 hour time by removing a jumper, or 50Hz operation by cutting a jumper. The Numitrons tubes were removed from equipment, and one spare will be included, they plug into high quality ceramic sockets.
PLUG IN DECADE COUNTER
Includes Five 5963 tubes as pictured
