If Nikola Tesla created a retro-styled watch today, it would probably look something like the NIWA. Boasting two incredibly small (IN-16) nixie tubes and glowing blue arc-reactor-ish coils (IV-15) on either side, this watch lights up to display the time, while its blue coils glow in the background.

“The nixie tubes aren�t power intensive, so will need charging once every 4-6 days. The NIWA comes with a MicroUSB port, allowing you to use any regular smartphone charger to juice it up. With the NIWA, you also get to choose what strap you want around this neo-vintage beauty. You can choose between silicone, leather, and metal straps, available in various designs. Along with the NIWA, you also get two extra IN-16 nixie tubes for repairs, a charger, a set of magnets (that allow you to set the time on the NIWA), and an exquisite looking dock for displaying your stellar time-piece from a parallel steampunk-loving universe,” according to Yanko Design.
