Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
The Nixie Tube Digital Wristwatch - The Nixie Tube Digital Wristwatch
Mon, November 08 2004 | 4:13PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Why a Nixie Tube Wristwatch? Well, the wristwatch was designed using surface mount components, and miniature NOS (1968 vintage) Nixie Tubes. A perfect gift for the uber-geek!

"The Nixie Wristwatch does not have a microprocessor, or programmed components. Standardized low-power CMOS logic drive the nixies in DC mode. A number of different circuits were considered when designing the watch. I eventually settled on the simplified logic approach, similar to the circuits used when LED digital wristwatches were entering the consumer market around 1970. Of course, I couldn't place the circuitry on one IC chip as they had done."
