Steampunk mixed in with a dash of Soviet era vacuum technology and DIY instructions, and what you've got is the Adafruit Industries Ice Tube Alarm Clock kit, a beautiful blue glowing timepiece with 0.002% accuracy...

The version 1.0 Ice Tube Clock kit is enclosed in a clear acrylic and requires assembly using what is described as a "basic" electronics tool kit (aka soldering iron, multimeter/oscilloscope, handy hands, diagonal cutters, and desoldering tool. If the $65 price tag is too steep or if the kit seems too easy for your geeky expertise skills, there are free instructions and schematics to design your own model from scratch.
