Color is something we all appreciate...you now can appreciate the lovely colors in our latest RGB Nixie clock!...introducing the "Bellissimo Colore"

We have created a timeless design for a clock that will dazzle your senses!.... ...a hand crafted six digit Nixie tube clock made with original Russian N.O.S. (New Old Stock) IN-14 Nixie tubes!

Nixie tube clocks blend the spirit, drama and eerie beauty of cold war technology
with modern electronics to create uncommon handcrafted timepieces.

The under tube LED Lighting is controlled by a hand held infrared remote control with an on board micro-controller. There are many color options to choose from. You are able to turn on and off the LED lighting and adjust the brightness. The remote controller has 16 different colored buttons and 4 different light control functions: Flash / Strobe / Fade / Smooth.


This clock is a typical desk-type clock one might find on a bookshelf in an office. However, this clock is quite unique in that is uses genuine vacuum-tube technology to display the time. The use of vacuum tubes in modern electronic appliances is in some sense a way to connect with the past. This clock mixes a little bit of history with modern electronics to create a design ethos combining both the ultra modern 1960s with current retro trends. A simple, sleek design for the cast acrylic plastic enclosure was chosen to reflect the minimalist design cues of the late 1950s to the mid 1970s.

This clock is microcontroller controlled, using the Microchip PIC16F628A chip. The quartz oscillator used is a low-drift temperature-compensated type, giving accurate time for years to come. High voltage is supplied by a high efficiency switching power supply. The nixie tubes are type IN-14 tubes. Nixie tubes, unlike other vacuum tubes, do not have a filament. This has two major impacts on the operational characteristics of the clock. Nixie tubes produce very little heat, and as such, do not require the kind of ventilation that other vacuum tubes need to function. Also, the tubes' operational lifetimes are greatly extended past that of regular vacuum tubes.

This beautiful handmade six digit clock measures 3 inches height; is 3 inches wide; 7.5 inches long. The case is made from black shiny cast acrylic bottom and top with clear sides The RGB LED’s form an interesting effect through the tubes. Four soft bumpers protect the table or desk top. The clock runs on a 12 Vdc adapter (The included adapter is only for North American mains). Other country adapters available on request.

Nixie tube prices have climbed steadily over the years. Since no more will ever be produced the value of these clocks should increase as well over time. Why not buy something that is beautiful, tells time and most likely will appreciate in value over time? The choice is yours!....
