Tube clocks, clocks on lamps, or as they are also called clocks on gas discharge indicators, elements and parts from old clocks were used in the design. The watch is based on gas discharge indicators of the times of the USSR and is already considered a rarity, since it is no longer produced. The watch case is milled from solid wood beams.No plywood, no veneer, no separately glued parts, lamps are illuminated with full-color OSRAM LEDs providing beautiful overflow of colors, the backlight is switched off. Modern electronics will delight the eye with the beautiful effects of switching indicators... The watch also has a full-fledged alarm clock with the Snooze function (for those who like to take a nap), and it also supports multiple date and time display formats, which will undoubtedly be a plus when using the watch in other countries. Time display format: 12 or 24 hours.
Date display format: day / month / year, month / day / year or year / month / day. Alarm clock with snooze mode, every 5, 10 and 15 minutes. Full-color backlight with "night mode" (no backlight, blue, red, purple, green, cyan, yellow, white). Modes of operation of the backlight: the backlight is off, overflow of colors or static color. The effects of switching numbers (no, crossfade, flash, count).The watch has the function of protecting lamps from burnout (regeneration). Type of discharge lamps: IN-12. The watch does not use old components such as k155id1, only modern electronics, an ARM Cortex M3 processor.
The lamps are not soldered to the clock board, but are installed in collets, which makes it easy to replace them. The name Nixie comes from the abbreviation NIX 1 - Numerical Indicator eXperimental 1 (experimental digital indicator, development 1).
The name was assigned to the entire line of such indicators and became a household name. In particular, the Soviet indicators IN-14 in foreign catalogs are recorded as IN-14 Nixie. From the early 1950s to the 1970s, indicators built on the gas discharge principle were dominant in technology. Later they were replaced by vacuum-luminescent, liquid crystal displays and LED indicators and have become quite rare today. Currently, most gas discharge indicators are no longer being produced.
Some researchers believe that about 10 years before the invention of the Nixie tube type indicator, a similar design device called the Inditron was developed. The authors of this invention made a mistake by not using a separate anode at all. In order to illuminate one or another cathode digit in such an indicator, it was required, as in a conventional gas-discharge indicator, to supply a negative potential. But the positive potential was applied to the next figure - it became the anode for a while.It is clear that it is quite difficult to control such an indicator, and the absence of a mesh anode that does not allow metal particles sprayed from the cathodes to the front wall of the balloon led to its rapid turbidity. The Inditron was forgotten, and the gas discharge indicator soon had to be reinvented.
Survived unusual devices quite a bit. If desired, not only a clock, but also a calendar can be performed on gas discharge indicators. In recent years, the popularity of discharge indicators has increased due to their unusual antique look. Unlike LCDs, they emit soft neon orange or purple light. To UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
