We’re Mad for this Mechanical Art Device #NixieTube Clock by Frank Buchwald

With a limited edition of 12 clocks made for the Geneva-based M.A.D. Gallery’s 5th anniversary, German engineer Frank Buchwald fabricated these fantastic Nixie tube clocks, known as Nixie Machine II. Now, before you get too excited, this clock is limited – so they sell for a mere $30K depending on the given day’s currency fluctuation. Alas, it’s still beautiful – and free! – to look at online!

To celebrate the 5th anniversary of the M.A.D.Gallery, German sculptor Frank Buchwald introduces the new Nixie Machine II clock created in collaboration with Dalibor Farny, a passionate engineer.

Frank Buchwald’s impressively detailed works were part of the initial line-up of artists showcased at the inauguration of the first M.A.D.Gallery in Geneva. Buchwald’s intrepid Machine Lights followed by the first Nixie Machine inspired the admiration of MB&F founder Maximilian Büsser from the start, landing Buchwald’s work a permanent exhibit at the M.A.D.Galleries.

Introduced in the 1950s, Nixie tubes – also known as cold cathode displays – became a popular way of presenting numerals using glow discharge. The name Nixie is thought to derive from the Burroughs Corporation’s “NIX I,” which in turn was believed to have stood for “Numeric Indicator eXperimental No.1.”
