There are a lot of cool retro things out there, but none as original and unusual as this cathode Nixie Watch from Cathode Corner. The watch uses two nixie tubes – neon display tubes once used in sixties calculators – to display the hours, minutes, and seconds in order through the flicking of the wrist. Not only that, but it’s easily serviceable since the top is detachable and it’s even possible modify the watch’s programming through the downloadable source code.
It’s designed for everyday use and is water-resistant and costs around $400. It’s a little pricey, but if you want to stand out in the best possible way, it’s well worth the money. If you want to see a video of the watch in action and then buy one, click here.
