Retro Futurism Timepieces : Firebird Nixie Tubes Watch

1 min read

The Firebird Nixie Tubes Watch by Aleksander Volochaev is a low-tech accessory that harkens back to yesteryear in order to create a timepiece that is both retro and futuristic all at once. The timepiece features a body that’s crafted using a hard aluminum alloy that has been milled in perfection before being paired with a sapphire crystal lens overtop of the internal Nixie tubes. These numitron vacuum tubes will display different digits in order to make telling the time feel more taking a reading from an old-fashioned piece of machinery.

The Firebird Nixie Tubes Watch can tell time in both 12 and 24-hour formats, and features a built-in rechargeable battery pack that will provide up to 1,000 views or about one month in standby mode per charge.
