Atmos is a clock or rather an ingenious invention that appears to defy the laws of physics, running for centuries without the need for any conventional energy source or rewinding, manufactured since 1928 by the Maison of fine watchmaking, Jaeger-LeCoultre since 1833.
Its sophisticated mechanism makes the Atmos clock run on normal, everyday fluctuations in air temperature; a variation of just one degree Celsius is sufficient to guarantee two days of running time.
This unprecedented Atmos has been designed for the most accurate reproduction of the true cycles of the Earth, Sun and Moon than we have seen ever before in any Atmos clock. Thus it is the most complex Atmos clock ever created run by Jaeger-LeCoultre's Calibre 590, also named “tellurium” in homage to 18th-century clocks, this mechanism has been developed on an Atmos.
