Congratulations on your purchase of a NIXIE WATCH!
It really is a very unique and quirky thermionic timepiece. I had one, but gave it to Steve at Mullard Magic, as he needed cheering up at the time and it was just too big for my slender wrist. It will certainly garner interest from curious bystanders in cafes and public places when you tilt your wrist to activate it. I found that the battery lasts between 4-6 months depending on the number of times that the tubes are lit up - you will constantly play with it at first so have a spare battery handy!
if he has two of the Marconi's jump on them! Otherwise in the other listing they are the mil speck Mullards. I have purchased from this seller and they are excellent and sound the same as the phillips i have but with a little more bass.
On to other tube news. Next week see's the arrival of two new tubes for me!! Very excited about these two as they come in a special case...
Lets just say Flavor flav has nothing on me..
