By Geoff Tomlin (UK), built in 1969
Electromechanical time/date nixie clock from Geoff Tomlin (UK), built in 1969. The only semiconductors used are diodes!
Time is counted by a synchronous motor and series of gears, operating rotary switches. Day is counted by a uniselector driving a diode matrix decoder for the day nixies. Month is counted by a uniselector driving the month wheel, and another uniselector is used to determine the number of days in the month. A modified impulse counter is used for the year. 12/24 hour display selectable via rotary switch top-left.

This is my Steampunk lamp Diabolical Lamp “Rick” in honor of Rick Griffin the 60’s rock poster artist who created the eye-conic dancing eyeball poster.
This is a construction of three antique components. The Art Nouveau base once held a Loetz glass bowl. The exquisitely designed Aesthetic Japanese style brass ball is from a Victorian gas chandelier. The wrought iron finial is from a Victorian fence.
