I have seen many Nixie clocks, and taken inspiration from other people's ideas and designs. It is interesting and also useful to see what other people come up with, to help you make your own clocks, and see how others use Nixie tubes and other display devices - Panaplex - Crt - VFD, it doesn't just have to be Neon. It is very much within the hobbyist realm and this page is for sharing and swapping notes! There are some exceptionally creative folks out there and should rightly have their creations on display!

Very pleased to have this Amazing Steampunk clock, using the E1T display tubes. This was made by Peter Sztojanov from Steampunk Alchemy. It was seeing Pete's work that inspired myself to make my Steampunk clocks.

Another view of Peter's E1T clock running. The tubes work like miniature CRT displays and indicate the number with a blue line by the required digit. A beautifully executed clock done to Peter's exacting standards.
