On the top of the box a large New Old Stock socketed Nixie tube (IN-18 Russian tube) display hours and minutes one after one.

Each number is displayed for about a second with a slight pause between each digit to improve visibility.

This funny non-conventional way of reading hour will captive the attention of every body and provide a non-stop digit moving in the tube.

There is no external switch for setting the clock; magnetic contacts (Reeds) are used in place. Setting the clock is done with a small magnet (strong earth type).

It allows easy setting while avoid people to change the setting when looking and touching the clock.

Placing the magnet at the front top left angle of the box will set hours, top middle front angle for 10's minutes and top front right angle for minutes. Also, the tube is red low lighted by the bottom, when the magnet is correctly placed for setting, the bottom of the tube is high lighted, this allow easy magnet positioning.
