The Heritage Avo-8 MK II Nixie Clock

  • This is an original Bakelite 1950's Avo - 8  that has been professionally upcycled into a great little Nixie Clock.
  • It's the much older Avo with the characteristic curved dial that is instantly recognizable.
  • In order to fit the Nixie tubes in, a carefully curved circuit board was designed
  • The original dial was recreated with the holes in the right place for the tubes.
  • Everything behind the glass is new.
  • The Bakelite casing and controls on the front are all original to the instrument.
  • No two of these heritage Avo clocks will be the same.
  • The casings all bear marks and labels they acquired throughout their life.
