Nixie Machine is a is a jaw-dropping, sculptural clock designed by German artist Frank Buchwald for M.A.D.Gallery (short for “Mechanical Art Devices”), the Geneva boutique of MB&F. Crafted out of burnished steel and brushed brass, the imposing desk clock is equipped with six original Z568M Nixie tubes made by East German company RFT in the ’60s to display the time.
Powered by a direct drive mechanism , the Nixie Machine is equipped with a GPS receiver and DCF77 receiver for automatic time and date setting, so it will always be on accurate local time. Priced at 24,800 Swiss francs, including VAT (Approx. $28,882USD) Frank Buchwald’s Nixie Machine comes in a limited edition of only 12 pieces, so you probably won’t be able to score one for your home or office any time soon.
