Apollo Numitron Flat-Tube Filament Clock - Solid Walnut
Luminous Rex offers this Apollo Numitron Flat tube clock in a case of solid walnut hardwood.
This tube clock is a new take on an old display technology. Using Apollo Numitron "bathtub" type tube display units, the clock provides a beautiful glowing display of hours, minutes, and seconds. These tubes were used in laboratories, aircraft, and other mission critical environments (such as pinball machines :) in the 1980s, providing clearly displayed digits from a wide viewing angle.
Similar to "Nixie" display tubes, Numitron tubes run at lower voltage, and don't have problems with cathode poisoning. The tubes in this clock are highly sought after for their beautiful orange "digital" glow, and a long display life of 100,000 hours (11 years).
Each clock is made by hand -- we use a CAM process to construct the solid walnut hardwood enclosure. After, it is finished, sanded, and sealed using hand tools. The entire process happens at our workshop in Seattle.
Each tube is 21mm diameter x 42mm in height.
This clock is powered over USB, with a high quality braided cord. You can power the clock using any standard USB-A port on your computer, a standard USB charger, or USB battery pack. USB cable is available in black color.
The clock has internal battery backup, retaining the correct time when not plugged in. You can download the app to set the clock's time when plugged into your PC or Mac here:
The clock comes with a one year warranty (excluding tubes). Please note that these tubes are very rare - in the unlikely case that repair is needed, we will replace tubes at cost, determined by the stock available on the market at the time of service. Luckily, if you take good care of your Apollo Numitron tube clock, there will be no need for tube replacement. We provide high levels of workmanship and take pride in the quality of our products.
