One of the German members of the Tube Collectors Association has built a Nixie tube clock. But it's not a typical Nixie clock. The guy decided to make ALL the electronics out of tubes. I estimate about 90 tubes, not counting the Nixies.

(Some people have far more time on their hands than I do.)

Text is in German but the photos will make your jaw drop.

Wow... Shocked

I'll have to say that is may be the best digital clock project I've ever seen. Idea

I love Nixie tubes - the warm glow just makes me feel good.
