LED Clock Mocks Nixie

by Paul Strauss

This clock looks quite a bit like those retro Nixie tube clocks, but instead of old vacuum tubes, it uses modern LED technology to achieve a similar result.

B & W LED Tubes Clock

B&W’s Tubes Clock features six independent segmented red LEDs encased in little smoked domes. They’re then placed on top of a stainless steel and wood base to create a really dramatic effect.

One of the big problems with Nixie tubes is that they can burn out over time. By using LEDs, you’ll probably never have to worry about the display losing brightness or going bad.

The Tubes Clock is offered by British home decor shop Posh Pad for £98 (which works out to about $199 USD.)

    this is a great-looking clock, but posh pad, who appear to be the sole distributor of this item, don’t ship outside the uk. anyone know of any way to get around this (e.g. a service)?’

    Try Contemporary Heaven

    It looks like they carry B&W LED clocks too, and they claim to ship outside of the UK via DHL. You might need to grab a power adapter though, since the UK doesn’t use the same power standards as North America.

  3. Jeff S. says:

    The other thing you have to ask yourself is: Does it keep anything other than 24 hour time, which is standard in much of Europe and the UK? And if you have to use a power converter to run it, and clocks use whatever AC Hz cycle rate tthey’re made for (which is 60Hz in the US) to keep time properly, will it still keep accurate time? A higher or lower hertz rate than what they have in the UK will throw it off.
