Collection

Atmos

A modern luxury clock with a truly revolutionary perpetual calibre, able to wind itself from nothing but air.
Overview

Time is eternal

The Atmos clock embodies Jaeger-LeCoultre’s mastery of perpetual motion. Perfected in 1928, the revolutionary winding mechanism is powered by the contraction and expansion of a mixture of gas. Timeless in its elegant aesthetic, the Atmos clock epitomises the exceptional proficiency of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s craftsmen and women and the brilliance of the Maison’s Atelier des Métiers Rares that has inspired generations of designers.

Design

A true piece of art

The flawless union of classic aesthetic and modern sophistication is the secret to the Atmos luxury clocks collection’s timelessness. Its unique design offers a window into the complexity of its mechanism from every angle. Faithful to its original design, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos clock has become a canvas for creativity and its outstanding shape has been reinterpreted and reinvented since its creation.

Elegant complexity

The Atmos perpetual motion clock’s dial has been marked by Roman numerals, Arabic numerals and indexes, yet no matter its design interpretation, it has retained an elegant complexity inspired by its strong Art Deco heritage. Depending on the model, a disc indicating the months and a moon phase indicator add a touch of complexity to the dial.

Exceptional mechanical complexity

Every Atmos clock features a truly complex, fascinatingly ingenious mechanism. To showcase this mesmerising movement, the Atmos luxury clocks collection features a transparent design which elevates the precision and intricacy of the movement. Meticulously decorated and finely crafted, every component of the calibre blends perfectly with the clock’s aesthetics, creating a perfect visual harmony.

The Atmos winds itself from nothing but air… indeed, it would take 60 million of them to consume the same amount of energy as a 15-watt bulb. The Atmos is a truly exceptional piece of timekeeping mastery.

An enduring inspiration

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos clock collection has remained contemporary, elegant and sophisticated throughout its history. From Art Déco to the rarest crafts and most advanced watchmaking complexities, it has retained its timeless soul. Great designers like Marc Newson have reinterpreted its classical style helping create a true icon of style. In our Ateliers des Métiers Rares, Jaeger‑LeCoultre artisans have also reinterpreted the Atmos with the finest natural materials including wood and straw. They have also reproduced the works of famous artists.

Heritage

A revolution in timekeeping

Thanks to a revolutionary mechanism invented by Jean-Léon Reutter in 1928 and brought to market by Jaeger-LeCoultre in the 1930s, the Atmos luxury clock lives on air. Its superb design has been reinvented and recrafted since its creation, elevating it to the rank of icon. Nicknamed the “President’s Clock”, the Atmos was the official gift of the Swiss Confederation.

Calibre

One degree of change for a 48-hour reserve

The calibre that powers the Atmos clock is a truly ingenious mechanism. It can run for an unlimited period of time, using close to no energy and without the slightest human intervention, all thanks to the slightest changes in temperature.

Made in our Manufacture

From its calibre to its cabinet, every Atmos is designed, manufactured and assembled under one roof, at our Manufacture in the Vallee de Joux. Our obsession with quality is renowned as all the luxury clocks are assembled in a dedicated workshop. Therefore, Atmos workshop’s watchmakers have been specifically selected and trained in order to become the experts of the perpetual clock.
