Here is a nice IN-12 Nixie clock that is sold as a kit or may be purchased fully assembled for 40 € more. One neat feature about this clock is that the tubes are backbit with color changing LED's that can be programmed for a specific color or allowed to fade between colors. (The back light brightness is adjustable.) For the time display, several modes are included: scrolling date, display fading, and digit cycling in.
