This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in January of 2019. If you've been searching for the perfect accent piece for your living space, consider purchasing a vacuum tube clock. Also known as Nixie clocks, the items collected here are both retro and high tech, and the assembly process is likely to appeal to hobbyists who love a challenge. If you aren't a soldering expert, there are also preassembled models that look every bit as cool. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 19, 2019:

Selected items that are shipped fully assembled, like the Chronix Vintage, in addition to products that are designed for hobbyists to put together themselves. We've also included several options for folks who seek a device that looks like a vacuum tube clock but doesn't require time-consuming assembly — or come with a hefty price tag. The Art & Artifact Radio, for instance, was chosen with this in mind.
