This Indicator-6 Nixie clock is both a step back in time and a step forward into the future. The imagery of this clock takes you into the workspace of Sherlock Holmes. You’d probably find it next to his monocle and pipe.

The Indicator-6, designed by Fred Niell, uses genuine vacuum-tube technology (very old-school) to display the time in hours, minutes and seconds within the 6 nixie tubes.

This old school/new age clock goes for around $275, but can you really put a price on awesome? Stats for Cutting-Edge Old Clocks Trending: Older & Average
