Thisnixie tubes to display the time via a quartz movement. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about this very unique wristwatch which is available to back via Kickstarter with pledges starting from $450 or £336. If all goes well with the campaign shipping is expected to take place during June 2018. The creators of the NXI Watch explain more about its inspiration, unique design and retro style technology.
It all started with one person’s passion for things that tell time in an unusual fashion. Then, another person’s love of gizmos joined the party. Add to that a splash of secretive engineer and you get the Nixie Experiment-1, aka the NXI Watch. Since you’ve found yourself on this page, I think we can stipulate to one thing… Nixie Tubes are pretty cool. Nixie Clocks are even cooler. But, Nixie Tube Watches… those are about as good as it gets. There aren’t many Nixie Tube Watches out there. And, the ones that are available are take it or leave it without much customization available. That’s where NXI comes in.
Our watch is unique. Controlled by a custom circuit board, the NXI Watch has a two-tube set-up. Hit the button and the hours are displayed followed by the minutes. What sets us apart is our dial, or lack thereof. The choice is yours, really. The NXI Watch’s 45 mm case is milled from a single piece of stainless steel with a stainless steel bezel and scratch-resistant crystal secured by two screws. Remove those two screws and you can insert any dial you want. The face of the NXI Watch is completely customizable. With a rechargeable battery, your NXI Watch can run at least a month between charges.
