Cathode Corner Square Nixie Tube Watch

Postby Racer-X » June 30th 2018, 4:57pm

"Back in 2010 I bought a Nixie watch from Cathode Corner. This was something that I had wanted to own for a couple of years, but it was also a considerable amount of money for me to spend, and really far more than I could sensibly afford at the time.

In hindsight though, buying that watch turned out to be one of the best investments I've made. The (amateurish) video I made about it has now been seen by well over a million people and has helped to introduce many new subscribers to the channel.

The idea I could buy something that I couldn't really afford to feature in a video and hope to pay for it over time using the ad revenue has shaped the way the channel has been run ever since. My slightly rash decision to buy that watch late one night has by now paid dividends, and also created a connection between myself and the watch creator, David from Cathode Corner.

So when the time came for David to present his new square Nixie Watch to the world, he turned to me to make a new video, and you can see this below. As six years have elapsed between the two videos I'd like to think that this one is considerably less amateurish (and it's now in 4K).

It is moments like this that really make all the effort worthwhile.
