Nixie watch fit on small wrist....

...well, I have skinny wrists, also, and the Nixie Watch, while obviously big, is just big enough to get everyone's notice, but is not a bother to actually wear.

The case is aluminum, and the inside is actually mostly air. The tubes are hollow, obviously, the battery is lithium, super light, and there is a tiny circuit board. The whole thing weighs just a couple ounces.

I'm in the car business and have a pilot's license, so wearing a big watch is part of the uniform. I'm used to wearing 48mm chronographs, so while the Nixie Watch is much bigger than those, it is lighter than even my Tag Heuer titanium, limited edition, Carrera Day/Date.

I'm on the road, I'll get some photos up this weekend.
