The Nixie Clock uses six cold-cathode tubes, (aka. Nixie tubes) to display the time. Each tube has a cathode in the shape of the numbers one through to nine. To display a numeral, power is sent to an individual cathode, which then glows orange.
The base is made from a combination of cherry wood and shiny black anodized aluminum. Using a state of the art circuitry, time is kept by an ultra precise real time clock, accurate to within 0.0003s per minute.
From Cathode Corner, this elegant timekeeping piece of modern art retails at $415.
