An airy take on a classical table clock with proven and virtually perpetual movement.
The Atmos Transparente clock inside its crystal clear cabinet made of anti-reflective glass features a minimalistic, yet playful geometry: the straight lines of the black hour-markers and both central hands are housed within a circular dial, which itself sits inside a rectangular case. The crazy amount of transparency allows the components of its movement – the calibre 563 – to be admired from every angle. Following the mechanical principles brought to market by Jaeger-LeCoultre in the 1930s, just a single degree of variation in the room temperature gives the Atmos clock enough power to run for two entire days. So when we call it almost perpetual, we mean it.
The capsule inside the movement contains a gaseous instance that travels up or down following the slightest temperature rises and falls. Of course, the energy consumption is also kept in check: Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos Transparente beats only twice a minute, and like all Atmoses requires a solid surface without too much vibration. The base is satin brushed and rhodium plated. The price is $9450.
