“VULCAN is a contemporary square-faced wristwatch that features two Nixie tubes for numerical display. Nixie tubes (AKA cold cathode displays) are neon-filled glass tubes that use gas discharge to emit a warm, orange glow from shaped wires. They are a truly beautiful way to display time as well as a symbol of an era filled with unprecedented scientific and engineering breakthroughs. Though modern technology has rendered Nixie tubes obsolete, we are still enamored with the character of their layered numerals and enchanting glow. “
“In this carefully crafted harmony of modern and vintage, we are giving Nixies a new life in a modern vessel. We want you to be able to bring this rare and special technology into your everyday life as an expressive accessory that you can wear anywhere. The VULCAN watch’s sleek look and unusual display make it distinctive yet understated, and is sure to pique the interest of all who catch a glimpse of its clean, bold design.
