DESCRIPTION

  • ATMOS clock

    Objet d’Art since 1928

    The Atmos clock is intimately bound up with time itself. First of all, through its mechanism which is driven by infinitely small successive changes in temperature. And secondly through its style, which has brought it majestically and serenely through the decades for over 80 years. Only the oscillations of its annular balance and the regular dance of its hands serve as sutble reminders that the time is still turning. Two new creations sublimate the spirit of a collection with an almost perpetual mechanism that remains an impressive technical feat to this day. One is a re-edition of a 1930s clock, and the other a contemporary piece in Baccarat crystal designed by Marc Newson. Both express the language of time through a pure design that exalts its inherent complexity.

    In 1928, the engineer Jean-Léon Reutter defied physical laws by devising a clock movement designed to run for several centuries without wearing out or requiring any external intervention. Fascinated by this revolutionary invention, Jaeger-LeCoultre applied its manufacturing capabilities to perfecting the mechanism and handling its development. The Atmos clock was born.

    Today, although constantly refined, the principle is the same as ever: the energy required to drive the clock is supplied by changes in temperature. The secret lies in a hermetically sealed capsule containing a gaseous mixture – initially mercury – that dilates when the temperature rises and contracts when in drops. In conjunction with the clock’s mainspring, the capsule acts as a mechanical lung which ‘breathes’ in and out, and in doing so winds the barrel in step with atmospheric fluctuations. Even a one-degree Celsius shift is enough to guarantee a full 48-hour power reserve. Its annular balance also operates in an amazingly economical manner: by oscillating just two times per minute, its energy consumption is 250 times less than that of a conventional wristwatch, which beats at an average rate of 300 vibrations per minute. This environmentally-friendly mechanism that was always far ahead of its times is so sparing that it would take 60 million Atmos clocks to equal the energy consumption of a 15-watt electric bulb.

    This impressive technical feat is matched by a design that evolves in step with the times. Jaeger-LeCoultre has continuously evolved the Atmos line by imbuing it with a strong aesthetic identity. Each model features a clever blend of functionality and style, lending an emotional and cultural dimension to the measurement of time. The new releases introduced in 2010 also highlight the Atmos odyssey in spectacular glass or crystal cases combining art, design and manufacturing expertise.

    Atmos Réédition 1930

    The Atmos Réédition 1930 is a vibrant tribute to Jean-Léon Reutter and to the era that witnessed the birth of this fabulous mechanism. While the model remains faithful to the original clock, the Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmakers and designers have been careful to offer the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 560 a means of expression worthy of its technical sophistication. Beneath its bell-shaped glass cabinet, the brass dial clearly proclaims its Art Deco heritage. Its understated elegance is graced with black-tipped white hands gliding over 1930s style handwritten numerals. A broad central opening reveals a glimpse of the intricate workings of the movement, which is entirely hand-decorated in keeping with the noblest fine watchmaking traditions. The pure, airy lightness emanating from this commemorative model is accentuated by a steel base that is so fine as to be as almost invisible, creating a feeling of time literally standing still. The Atmos Réédition 1930 is issued in a limited series of 300.
