Nixie clocks and the like are pretty damn sexy. No question about it. But here’s a clock retro-sexual enough to make even the Nixie clock all hot and bothered. As well as us geeks. It was created by David Forbes, in his Cathode Corner laboratories, and somehow manages to capture the old and the new in a completely unique way, sporting a 3/8-inch acrylic case and a cathode ray tube that tells the time inside.
For $999 you get a display that shows analog style or digital style numbers, with GPS so that you are assured to have the exact time, and knobs on the back. Gorgeous nerd-gasmic knobs to fiddle with. According to Forbes, a limited production version is almost ready for buying. I don’t know about you, but we want one.
