Tubes Clock poorly impersonates Nixie tube clock

I'm sure that you've seen those cool clocks made from Nixie tubes before. They look really cool, but unfortunately they're expensive and you run the risk of the vacuum tubes burning out, which can be a real pain. Here's a cool clock that simulates the look with LED lights.

I'm actually unimpressed by this Tubes Clock from B&W. It really doesn't look much like an old Nixie tube clock. It just looks like a bunch of LED numbers put inside cheap plastic tubes. The stainless steel makes it look too new, while they're trying to simulate a very retro looking clock.

If you're in love with this clock it'll set you back around $200. Honestly, you're better off finding the real deal.
