Next Production: April/May 2017
TGT Studios Nixie Clock Series blends old-world technology with modern components and wraps it in a retro-futurist package. Each piece is unique.
WHAT IS THE CLOCK MADE FROM?
I select all my wood personally, from rough stock, and process it no differently than I would material for a piece of fine furniture. All of my woods are chosen specifically for quality, figuring (where possible), and appropriateness of grain.
HOW DOES THE CLOCK WORK?
A nixie tube is a cold-cathode low-pressure vacuum tube that lights a series of digit filaments surrounded by neon gas. A small electrical current is then passed through the tube, lighting the digit filament. Despite this constant electrical feed, since the tubes are classified as cold-cathode and therefore run at a very low temperature, there is essentially no risk of overheating.
Nixie tubes utilize stacked filament numerals that create a very real sense of depth as the numbers change. Each number is its own filament and as a result the numbers jump forward and backwards within the tube. The tubes are controlled by a custom circuit board contained within a plexiglass housing. The clock is controlled by four designated buttons on the rear of the unit, the knobs at the front do not perform a function.
But most importantly, the IN-12 Tubes and circuit board are not dependant on AC current and can be run in any country.
