Bad Dog Designs 'Pandora' Steampunk Nixie Clock
Bad Dog Designs presents Pandora's Clock
These are One off individually Hand made Nixie tube clocks in the Steampunk Genre. A Nixie clock uses old fashioned Nixie tubes to display the time. No longer manufactured anymore, they are what were used before LED and LCD displays were invented. Similar to radio valves in construction, they are filled with Neon gas and individual digits 0-9 that glow amber when a voltage is applied. There are no filaments to burn out and they can last for 10's of years.
The tubes are backlit with blue leds (or any colour you want) and in darker conditions gives a lovely effect to the readout. The clock displays HH:MM or HH:MM:SS depending on design. The clock can also be programmed to shut down at night, led brightness, leading zero etc there are lot of parameters that can be programmed. Every 10 minutes the display cycles through all the digits in a slot machine style, to cycle through any numbers that are not used, in order to preserve the life of the tubes.
Note, these Steampunk clocks are individually made to order. The pictures on this listing are as an example of what the clock will look like once completed. There are a selection of previous Pandora designs to give you some idea of what the end clock may look like. The delivery guide of 48 days is dependant on current workload, they are handmade and there is only one of me!
Once Ordered I will contact you and discuss the design / details that you may want included in the piece.
