    this is very cool. part of me wishes that the time is on a single line, but your dial/face does look like it supports it well

    I do have some plans for a nixie watch with 4 digits in line, that will be my next model. It will be made as 4 very small separate tubes. But, I won't start the development of that model for at least a year.

    Anyway, one more info, we'll most probably use a full titanium case.

    Based on necessity for length of case to accommodate tubes it makes total sense to go with the lighter titanium for this piece. Keep those updates coming

    Ah, the price... the parts and the whole production process is very expensive. To make this tube, I'm using some of the technologies used for military and space applications. If we make a KickStarter campaign, there is a possibility of reducing the price under $1K during the campaign, but not too much. It will depend on the goal quantity, since there is a huge difference in price of the parts for 100 and 1000 pieces.

    Great job, the case is nicely designed and very unique. The contrast on the dial shown in your first post (second render) is cool, much more interesting than a flat single colour dial. This is definitely the first nixie tube watch I'd consider, and hats off to you for commissioning custom tubes!

    the concept is awesome.
    how well do you think it will deal with bangs, small drops etc?
