The Jaeger-Lecoultre Atmos Transparente is a clock made in an Art Deco style that stays in near-perpetual motion. Inspired by the timepieces designed in 1928 by famed engineer Jean-Léon Reutter, the manually winding clock delivers beauty and functionality in one package. The clock is 145 x 185 x 250 mm and is encased in anti-reflective glass and features hour and minute indicators. The 217 components capture your imagination by being finished in starkly contrasting black, gold, and white faces. The clock operates at 120 vibrations per hour among 15 jewels and a single barrel. The dial is made of glass while the base has a rhodium finish. A JLC Caliber 563 manual movement powers the clock.
What’s most remarkable is that the clock can run in near perpetuity without batteries or winding. A change in temperature of just 1 degree — warmer or cooler — is all it takes to charge and power the clock for another 2 whole days.
