Great watch for a beginner nixie enthusiast! This is my first ever nixie clock and I’m absolutely in love! It took awhile to figure out how to program it but once we got that down it was perfect. The only downside is how frail it feels, I’d be worried wearing it as my everyday watch as I work with animals but if they come out with a hardier design I’m sold on that too! Colors are fantastic

I love it. Fits nice, looks awesome and keeps time perfectly. I just wish I could figure out how to get it to stay illuminated for more than 3 seconds.

The is a flex type kind of watch, if you wear this out everyone will notice it right away and ask you about it. Watching their faces light up when you push the button especially at night is an awesome feeling and knowing your one of the few people in the world with this masterpiece of time keeping mounted to your wrist is extremely satisfying. The battery life has been much better than expected and was even longer after I swapped out the green battery it came with, with a high quality japanese cell with a black cover as it looked even better with a black battery vs. the green one. If you have the money and are thinking about buying this watch don't hesitate to order it, you will love it
