Back to the Future Nixie Clock
Made as a tribute to the Back to the Future trilogy of movies, the clock features the iconic Delorian engraved on the front. No two are ever the same as each clock has its own individual arrangement of electronic parts on the top. The clock case is made from solid brass and beech, with 4 off Russian IN-12 Nixie tubes to display the time. The vintage electronic components are all hand assembled and tested in the UK.
Nixie tubes were invented in 1955, and were a means for early electronic devices to display numbers. They consist of a clear glass tube, with the numbers from 0 – 9 are stacked behind each other. The tube is filled with neon gas and then sealed. Each digit has its own connection, and when a small electrical current is applied, the neon gas around the digit is ionized, which causes the distinctive orange glow. There is no heat produced, so the tubes can last up to 20 years.
