The circuit boards of this clock are commercialised by RLB Designs, visit their website if you wish to place an order. Additionally, I can make custom, finely hand-crafted cases such as the one shown below if you ask for one (see contact link on the right).
If you consider building a nixie clock without using pre-designed PCBs, these website might prove helpful :
- Mike Harrison, Build a Nixie-tube clock — Lots of informations about nixie clock circuits. In particular, you may want check the schematics of his clock and his power supply circuit.
- M. Moorrees, Nixie Stuff — Another high-quality information source about nixie clock circuits.
Besides RLB Design's platform, here is another Arduino-compatible option for you nixie clock :
- ArduiNIX, ArduiNIX shield for Arduino Uno — The ArduiNIX shield is a user open-source programmable platform for driving multiplexed nixie tubes or other high voltage displays.
Some links about nixie tubes themselves :
- ExplainThatStuff, How nixie tubes work — In depth explanations on nixie physics and operation.
- Wikipedia, Nixie tube — A rather complete article.
- Tube-Tester, Nixie World — Huge nixie tube inventory.
- Evil Mad Scientist, Nixie tube take-appart — The dissection of a nixie tube is performed, with neat pictures.

If you want to stay here, I would suggest you read :
- IN-18 nixie tube clock — My very first nixie clock and serious Arduino project altogether. The circuit structure as well as the coding share many similarities with Robin's clock.
- Nixie tube at 300 000 V — A little fun with nixies tubes and a Tesla coil. It produced very beautiful displays, which also highlight how a nixie tube works in normal conditions.
