The clocks are fully hand-crafted. We’ve made this retro Nixie tube clocks inspired by Vault-boy and Fall Out world. The clocks have 6 modes of Nixie tubes’ brightness. The longevity of the Nixie tubes is up to 200 000 hrs. o prolong your tubes’ longevity, we suggest you to avoid using the brightest mode all the time. We’ve also programmed your clocks with the tube safety mode, that runs every 15 minutes, and prevent Nixie tube cathodes’ poisoning.
Clocks also have blue lightning modes (6 modes, including turn-off mode). You may choose 12-hours-time displaying, or 24-hours-time-displaying. For Thailand residents: we, unfortunately, do not have a 6-hours mode yet, but we are open to suggestions 🙂
