Jason Von Nieda’S Tube Clock Tells Time in a Vacuum


This awesome clock was put together by Jason von Nieda, and I have to say that it looks great. It’s definitely one of the best vacuum tube clocks out there!

Jason put together this clock in about 4 months. He built it around a retro Russian IV-18 Nixie tube. As inspiration, he cites Adafruit’s Ice Tube Clock, but didn’t like its acrylic enclosure. He decided to improve upon it and credits John Pfeiffer for the design of the enclosure.

The enclosure itself is great. It reminds me of some Apple computers, because of the perforated metal grills that are used in it.

I think that this clock simply look amazing. I’d love to have one in my bedroom or near my workstation.
