Has anyone here experimented with building nixie watches before?  I have a bunch of B4998 nixie tubes specifically for this purpose but I haven't gotten around to beginning inverter and circuit design on it yet.

Before I did, I figured I'd see if anyone here had ever experimented, and if so, if they had any tips.

norkimo, sadman means you need to see, for example, the May/June 2016 issue of Elektor (UK/USA edition).

Come here. I'm designing one now. With 4 nixie (why 4; because Nixies are very hard to find) with RGB leds, ARM processor, USB and adapter input, RTC 2 buttons ext.

Your project is super awesome!  I'm having trouble making the electronics smaller.  Maybe I will study your design and see if there are ways to adapt it.  Amazing work!

Nope. Watch.  It will be chunky yes, but I believe it can be a functional show piece.  Some years ago I got very lucky and was able to get a cache of about 44 brand-new (old new stock) B4998 nixie tubes, which to my knowledge were the smallest ever produced.
