Nixie Machine by Frank Buchwald
January 31, 2015
German artist Frank Buchwald designed this stunning Nixie tube clock in collaboration with MB&F’s M.A.D.Gallery (which is their Geneva based boutique which carries not just watches, but art and other high-end merchandise for those whose pocket books are deep).
The Nixie Machine is the best looking Nixie tube clock we’ve ever seen, and unfortunately it is priced higher than any clock of its kind. We have found much more accessible Nixie Tube clocks, like this one, but none as good looking as this.
The six tubes are arranged in pairs: one for hours, one for minute and one for seconds (or day, month, year). The beautiful glowing tubes are displayed on top of a burnished steel and brass structure, that MB&F refers to as a “retro-futuristic design.”
The Nixie tubes (Z568M) were originally manufacture by RFT is East Germany in the 1960 and have been perfectly preserved. They were sourced by Alberto Schileo and are among the largest available (at 90 mm in height) as well as the rarest ever made.
The Nixie Machine is available in a limited edition of 12 pieces.
