This new switch is inspired by what Cherry used in the old Nixdorf CT06 CT07/2 M Softkeys Keyboard from the 1980s. Those Nixie switches had an excellent reputation in the later enthusiast community. So... Cherry researched & developed a new version of those switches with similar specs but for the modern market, with no internal diode and a little dot of lubricant on the spring.

The milky upper housing and the characteristics of the spring and stem lead to a smooth feeling with rich acoustics.

Note: The current listing is for the unlubed variant of Nixies.
