Brushed metal nixie tube clock

The nature of nixie tubes makes any clock made of them relatively indistinguishable from its brethren, short of the composition of the base. There's not a lot of variation: six nixies lined up in a row, fluorescently glowing strangely sinewy numerals in the dark. But I still love the look for a bedside clock. This one is $350: it's like a Cold War nuclear countdown to the 6am apocalypse of waking up.
