This beautifully crafted Black Retro Nixie Clock has been created using old nixie tubes that have been salvaged from the former Soviet Union to create a timepiece that's simply charming. Crafted entirely by hand and taking over 22-hours to create, the Black Retro Nixie Clock is made by Nuvitron, but the interesting part is that they only use new nixie tubes in the manufacturing process; this requires locating old boxes of them in Eastern Europe that are remnants of the former Soviet Union.

The Black Retro Nixie Clock is essentially an upcycled piece of decor, which is appealing to both the historian as well as the design aficionado. As consumers look for more obscure ways to show off their preference for rare goods, the Black Retro Nixie Clock is a clear example of multiple aesthetics intermixing.
