Zonis has created a unique timepiece which it has launched via Kickstarter combining both modern styling and retro technology together to create the Nixiea. The Nixie tube watch is fitted with IN-16 Nixie tubes and features a smart tilt to wake mechanism and QI wireless charging as well as being IP67 waterproof. Backer early bird pledges are now available for the innovative project from roughly $99 or £83 (depending on current exchange rates).
“The elegance of a Nixie watch is timeless and fans of vintage electronics have been asking for a revival of Nixies for many years. Now NIXIEA watch combines vintage Nixie tubes with modern technology to produce a visually stunning timepiece. NIXIEA watch is complemented with two exquisite IN-16 Nixie tubes, which show the time through a warm display of neon lights. You will feel like part of history every time that you wear NIXIEA on your wrist.”
Assuming that the Nixiea funding campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and the project completion progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around December 2022.
