The expensive Soviet Nixie tube clock only used for military purposes in this Millclock model meets the hand-crafted enclosure.

Such combination of materials brings the Soviet and the contemporary epochs together. Transparency of the enclosure reveals the circuit and makes you almost feel the chemistry work. The blue LED back lights in the tubes show the moldered socket connections that give the whole machine a techno style glare. Being widely requested, this model has been presented both in IN-12 and IN-14 versions. The board dimensions of 100 x 30 mm make it a convenient modernized and applicable Soviet souvenir.

This clock is an electronic device made of nixie (contracted scientific name) tubes that contain low pressure gas: neon, and electrodes: wires of cathodes shaped like numerals and an anode mesh, positively and negatively charged. The tubes are mounted on the enclosure and connected to the circuit that is programmed to show information on these wires. Applying power to one cathode surrounds the wire number with a glow discharge or plasma of the orange coloring that is conditioned by the type of gas in the tube.
Due to the cathode poisoning prevention mechanism and highly professional tube soldering the lifetime of this Millclock tube clock is almost unlimited. Also, plasma based technology that is widely used in TV sets and neon lamps production has proved to be very popular with the customers.
