Miss the warm glow of vacuum tubes? If you liked the crude yet fascinating Nixie Clock we showed you last year, feast your eyes on its chic refinements. Now you can get a blend of classic technology and craftsmanship with the Chronotronix V400 Nixie Clock, using old-fashioned vacuum tubes from the '50s called Nixies, an acronym for a Numerical Indicator eXperimental tube.
Looking like components inside some kind of high-end stereo amplifier system, those nixie tubes are poking out there for all to see, sitting atop a cherrywood base with a black anodized deck. It's a minimalist statement that still gives you accurate timekeeping to within three seconds per week. If you want those tubes to last longer, you can power them down and the clock will still keep accurate time.

This limited-edition Chronotronix V400 Nixie Clock is available now for $385.
