M.A.D.Gallery, the arts and design division for Swiss watchmaker MB&F, is celebrating its fifth-year anniversary in 2017 with the launch of the Nixie Machine II clock. Created by German sculptor Frank Buchwald (as part of his Machine Lights series) in collaboration with Czech Republic-based engineer Dalibor Farny, the handcrafted showpiece utilises Nixie cathode tubes, along with a combination of mainly steel and brass, to tell time through its unique orange glow. The electronic heart of the machinery is connected to the digital realm to ensure consistently accurate time and date without any manual adjustments.

"Frank Buchwald's Machine Lights typify the mechanico-artistic excellence that forms the cornerstone of the M.A.D.Gallery," said MB&F Founder, Maximilian Büsser. "Frank creates machines that give light, where his craft transcends a practical purpose and his creations well and truly assume the status of artworks."
