Nixie Radian is the ultimate in modern style – a wall clock using vintage linear indicators. The world’s first analog nixie timepiece. A beautiful wall clock designed in the mid-century modern style. The design uses genuine vintage nixie tubes to create a timepiece that is both striking and simple. The center is carved from a solid block of hardwood cherry, engraved and painted with digits, and hand-finished to a soft shine. Just like any other analog clock or watch. The fully lit tube is the “long hand” which shows the minutes, and the half lit tube is the “short hand” which shows the hours. The Nixie Radian has a battery backup, so it will remember the time even if the power is interrupted.
