I purchased this as a Christmas present and it was a great success! This nixie clock design features great aesthetics and functionality-- well worth the price. In addition, Michael was very helpful in setting up my custom order and getting it delivered on the specified date. Thanks!

About

Cold War Creations

I’m from Duluth, MN, which is a unique city. It is in the Midwest, yet is a major port city on Lake Superior.

When I was growing up, there was the ever present Cold War reminders – air base, Bomarc Missile base and a SAGE building (large concrete block that would coordinate doomsday missile defense and response). All the Cold War buildings and bases have been repurposed to more peaceful activities now.

Duluth is also home to many artists, from photography to glass blowing.

I've always been interested in electronics - my grandfather designed and built radios in the '20s, and my uncle was an electrical engineer.

Now I blend my love of electronics and art to design and build unique Cold War inspired electronics.

All my products are 100% designed by me, from the cases, to the circuit boards to the software used in the clocks.

The products are hand built by Cold War Creations, including the circuit boards.
