Design has always been a struggle or even a balance of new and old, designers look to the past for what has been done in order to have inspiration to design something different. In the case of the nixie watch old vacuum tube technology meets modern cool watch and the results are amazing. Lets just call it ‘retro-modern’ for now but no matter what you call it still might just be the coolest modern old watch on the market today.
