The Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos Clock
The Atmos clock was created by Jaeger LeCoultre watchmakers in 1928 and still surprises people today because of its inventiveness.
The Atmos is a clock that has no external power source and never needs to be wound by hand. It isn’t powered by a suspended weight, as most pendulum clocks are, so for those who like clocks which don’t tick or make any noise this is a perfect choice. The Atmos clock gets its power from minute changes in atmospheric temperature, hence its name. Within a sealed capsule, a mixture of gases expand and contract with each temperature change. This is how the mechanism winds naturally without any human intervention.
With it’s glass case, the Atmos clock’s unique design allows the owner to see the complexity of the machinery from all angles. Perhaps due to its ingenuity and stunning design as well as it not needing to be wound, Jaeger LeCoultre are proud that the Atmos clock has been the official gift of the Swiss Confederation for years to Presidents, Prime Ministers, world-renowned artists, and even Popes.
