In celebration of 50 jears of ATMOS Jaeger LeCoultre made a limited edition of 1.500 pieces in the style of the first ATMOS made by REUTTER in the late 20' ies. Working: The Atmos clock contains a drum with an U-shaped tube containing mercury and a gas. Due to temperature changes a 'thermic' develops in the drum and causes the axle with the U-shaped tube to oscillate to and fro. Because of the continuous changes in temperature and atmospheric pressure there is a continuous oscillation witch causes the movement to roll permanently, we have a 'Pendule Perpetuele' Signature on the dial 'ATMOS Pendule Perpetuele, Brevets L.J.Reutter' . The invention was the work of the French engineer Jean Leon Reutter. The clock is in a perfect condition. Case and movement authentic, original gilding. Very exclusive in this Art Deco design.
There is a story behind a vintage watch.
Besides the obvious fact that traveling down the years,
a watch absorbs the energy of time and history, it often has a significant story to tell, based on the purpose it was originally made for.
