Eh up peeps, it walks.... it talks.... it's all-ll-ll-most human AND it's got a Nixie tube watch, yes it's me Mr Mullard Magic with my genwine thermionic watch. It comes to me courtesy of my good friend and even better customer Andy Smith, many of you here will know Andy as a Head-Fi big cheese and organiser of the 2012 Head- Fi meet which is occuring on September 15th near Cambridge.
Check Andy and the Head-Fiers out here:-
But before you do, check this watch out, titanium case, big enough to make an Olympic shot putter's wrist look puny and big enough for my 51 yo eyes to see....
All I do in bed is tilt my wrist (oooo-eeer!): -
And I am in good company because Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple wears a very similar watch and Woz goes on to say "My coolest, most attention-getting gadget is the coolest watch made. It's a nixie tube watch from Cathode Corner." The old-school nixie tubes run on 140 volts inside this watch. The screw-on cover makes it water resistant. When I flip my wrist, the two nixie tubes display first the hour, and second, the minutes. You can even program the angle at which the time gets displayed.
If you fancy a top day out wanting to see some smashing kit - including valves - along with me and my Nixie watch then pop along to the Head Fi Meet on Saturday 15th September - we'll see you there!
