Kosbo VFD Round Clock


Kosbo has just come out with a new VFD clock that is different from just about any other on the market.  Instead of using discreet 7-segment tubes like the IV-11, this used one single display in the shape of an analog clock.


Kosbo VFD Round Clock

I personally own one of his IV-11 clocks and I’m quite happy with it.  The PCB board is professionally assembled and I like the design of it.  This round VFD clock takes it to the next level – soon there will be an acrylic base to complete the device and based on the renderings provided, it looks quite attractive.

Once the base is released, I may order one and do a more formal review based on that.  In the mean time, go over to and check out the rest of the photos and the specs.  If you already have one of these, please leave me a message in the comments.  I'd really like to get your opinion on this device.

I ordered one of these, based on your blog post here. Not much I can say really, other than hot damn. I did write a favorable blog post about it, feel free to check it out:

I'm jealous. I'm waiting for the acrylic enclosure and then I am going to have to order one. It sounds like you've had a good experience with yours. I posted a link to your site on the Facebook page.

I have one of these clocks.
Well designed and easy to put together, although expectedly fiddly to insert all the pins of the VFD into the PCB.

The optional case looks nice, but doesn't quite 'clip' together, so a bit of glue of some sort would greatly help to hold it together.

Other than that, it's a nice clock that always receives positive comments.
