Single digit Chestnut wood boxed Nixie clock:



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 ½ 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 nonstop 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, a rear switch allow the tube to be white/blue lighted by the bottom, when the light switch is turned off and the magnet is correctly placed for setting, the bottom of the tube is high light to indicate the correct magnet positioning.

The box is professionally made of high quality French Chestnut wood, thickness is about 10mm!. The hand finish is 3 layers special blue varnish + beeswax finish.
