Time from mains frequency. No mains isolation transformer, no voltage doubler -- they ignite just fine with the rectified 115 VAC. Small transformer for the logic. Reset on power on; three buttons to set time. The six Russian IN-1 Nixies cost me a total of $10 US from seller kwtubes on eBay (he usually has all sorts of NOS Soviet stuff to sell). I had no sockets so used some sort of individual large Molex-type jacks.

I think I saw Sharper Image selling something like that for $300. Your total cost, less than $30?

This clock is from scratch including the transformer. Uses GE 3N83s and a few transistors, no ICs. Nixies are IN-12A.
