IN-12 Nixie Tube Clock from 70es-80es
This Millclock clock model is only meant for the genuine researchers of the eastern-western relations. It has compiled the old Soviet Nixie tube cold cathode technology, military plexi glass design of the 70-80es and allusion to electric guitar of the rock’s golden age.
It was the tensest and final stage of the Cold war between the two blocks. Military and chemical industries were developing fast. And though the Nixie tube clocks were still very expensive for the civilians and used mostly in the USSR military controls rooms, the plexi glass (polymethyl acrylate) was brought everywhere in the everyday life on the both sides. Even office chairs were made of it to show the space age aesthetics. Translucent acrylic guitars appeared on the stage and later on were LED back lighted.
This Millclcok IN-12 Nixie Tube Clock with 4 tubes is presented entirely in pexi glass. The Nixie tubes originally made of glass by the Soviet technology, are here in plexi and have rough military design.
The solid basement is made of translucent plexi. The circuit is positioned vertically as if built in the controls panel and is seen via transparent plexi enclosure.
Slow motion of orange plasma via minutes anodes and blinking seconds bulb resemble a countdown. But the LED back lights and the power plug sticking out on the top bring you association of an old acrylic guitar, rock and rock-and-roll concerts.
Compact board of 100x30mm is perfectly programmed. All electronic parts are of the best quality. And the device is very carefully assembled. Just as in the Cold war times. 4 IN-12 plexi tubes of 18mm count hours and minutes in 24-hour format, and display date and month. Cathode poisoning prevention mechanism will keep the tubes vital parts fit and save. Having endured eventual power disruption the clock will still resume accurate settings. If you are in the mood, you can set your night mode “Slot machine” number randomizer program to shows that life is just a game. And if you are a true Cold war items collector you just must have it!
