Jaeger-LeCoultre’s mighty Atmos clock was devised in 1928. Uniquely capturing a concoction of gases within a chamber behind the clock face, these gasses react to subtle changes in air temperature, contracting & expanding thus providing the energy by which the clock is powered. The Atmos clock literally lives on air without any electrical interference! Asides from being one of the most famous clocks on the planet, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Atmos Clock has quickly become a work of art in its own right. The cases have become architectural art pieces using glass structures and examples of marquetry that could safely hold their own in any museum or gallery.
Continuing to be the official gift to any newly inaugurated head of state from the Swiss Government, the Atmos Clock in any of its many forms proves to be an enduring symbol of timeless artistry. Discover the Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos collection in-store now!
