Introduction: Nixie Watch Prototype_C
Small worklog of my new nixie watch creation
I spend 6 month for building this watch.
Aluminium case. - Created from one solid piece of aluminium. Using lathe I cut 2 parts: top cover and casing
Quartz glass. - Glass cutted and polished from one solid block of quartz glass
Leather bracelet. - 28mm width
Docking station. - cutted from oak wood. On docking station installed mini-USB port for connectivity with charger.
Sensor adjustments - no mooving parts.
This is Fully Assembled and Tested Nixie Watch with 2 Pieces IN-16 NOS Tubes.
Power By: DC 5V via rechargeable battery or via Docking station.
Time before recharging: 6+ hours in active mode or more than 3+ month in passive mode
User Selectable: HH-MM / Change on - off / Charge left /Back-light colour
Dimension: Width 50mm x Depth 19mm
Docking station powered via USB. Oak Wood
Water resistance: Rainy weather will be not a problem.
Battery: Lithium-polymer, nonremovable. 400mah
Accuracy: +/- 1 second per month
Operating Temperature: -25 to +40°С / +3 to 105°F
Glass: Quartz glass !!!
First of all i'll ansver for your question abaut sharing drawings or cirquit:
Sorry byt it will be really impossible: 2 weeks ago my SSD drive died with all drawings... of all my creations
I have 5 finished boards left and i\ll use them for Steampunk art. (like on first photo)
Materials: Solid aluminium block, bicycle spokes, quartz glass, oak, little brass.
Equipment: Lathe, Dremel, file, time
Step 2: Circuits
Watch assembled from 4 circuits
2. Tube board
3. Left RGB led board
4. Right RGB led board
1. Atmel microcontroller
2. Accelerometer or buttons
3. 2 batteries
4. no RTC
5. power supply
Working mode: Dynamic indication
Circuits i ordered on factury this time. I use board with multiple layers. Board thickness 0.75 mm
Step 3: And More Photos
And more photos from photoset it was really cold
