On August 2, 2018 a new project of the wristwatch on the basis of unique indicator lamps from Ukrainian engineers Yaroslav Tilnov and Ivan Sergienko inspired by design and innovation has successfully started on the Kickstarter.
INSPIRATION AND IDEA
Excellent Nixie Watch / ver. 1 – the first version of the wristwatch of a unique design using innovative technologies. Inspiration for their creation were experiments in the field of electronics. Initially, the first models of watches were collected for their own use, but in the future, after increasing interest in our models, we decided to mass production.
Nixoid and Glower are tube wristwatches, which uses are symbol tubes IN-16 and IV-9 to display time. This is collaboration of rare components and modern electronics. We fill the old Nixie tubes with a new life.
The watches use unique indicator lamps IN-16 and IV-9 manufactured in the USSR. Nobody knows that the lamps produced in the USSR are the most reliable, have the thickest glass and are very resistant to vibrations, because they were developed for use in the military industry. We broke a lot of indicator lamps from different manufacturers, such as the USA, Germany or Japan, and we can say for sure that you will make the right choice by choosing a clock on Soviet-made lamps. We use only new lamps, from old military warehouses.
Clear, but smoothly smoothed edges of the watch, bright shine of indicators inside the tubes, mysterious flicker, during the display of the date and time. All this, in the aggregate, will make you wear this accessory.
