Created to display the time in five different time zones simultaneously, the Nixie Time Zone V2 is a unique kinetic table clock that will make you travel around the globe. The time is displayed using new, genuine “Nixie” tubes (numerical indicators) made by hand in Germany in the 60s. These gas-filled tubes have a lifespan of more than 20 years in standard operation and have become almost impossible to find today. Invented and designed in our studio in Lausanne, Switzerland, this table clock is entirely Swiss Made by the same workshops that manufacture components for the most prestigious Swiss watch brands.
The Nixie Time Zone Clock V2 is made from the highest quality materials and machining technology. Almost each component is processed more than one time in the same machine to obtain an incredible level of detail. Many of the components are finished by hand : the brushed and polished finishings or the orange enamel painted letters (similar to “cloisonné”), which requires utmost precision and skill.

Most of the components are treated in PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) in three colors : light grey, dark grey and blue. PVD is a high-end coating used for luxury watch components, medical tools and aerospace technology. The body, which is milled from a solid aluminum cylinder, is anodized in a unique bronze-grey color that was formulated just for us.
