About this project

I was asked to make a one off steampunk Nixie clock to beat all others! This is the result, it has dual time zones - a running Steam engine on the top, steam generator on the side and the centrepiece is the gyroscope assembly out of an old spitfire. Clock now resides in Singapore.
