Cathode Corner's Nixie Watch with neon display


No, the front of this watch isn’t missing, this is how the Nixie Watch from Cathode Corner should look.

The timepiece, picked up and featured on Shiny’s male-friendly lifestyle blog Brandish, uses two nixie tubes – neon display tubes once used in sixties calculators and now used here to display the hours, minutes, and seconds in order, with a flick of the wrist.

This eye-catching watch might use old-fashioned technology, but there’s nothing old-fashioned about the price – $400. Find out more about this, more great watches and plenty more besides at Brandish.
