Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s 2016 Atmos Clock

Atmos Classique

Elegant and timeless, the Atmos Classique combines a pure rhodium-plated cabinet with a deep blue dial. This original clock is a work of true beauty.

The spirit of invention

Just where did Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s clockmakers find their inspiration when they first conceived the Atmos back in 1928? Where did they get the idea of using variations in temperature as a source of energy? Even today the Atmos clock continues to surprise by its sheer inventiveness.

Produced in a series of limited editions, the Atmos clock literally lives off air. Inside an airtight capsule a mixture of gases expands and contracts with every change of temperature. In this way the mechanism is naturally self-winding and requires no human action.

Perfect balance

Its subtle combination of tradition and modernity is no doubt the secret that gives the Atmos collection its timeless character. Its unique design allows the complexity of its mechanism to be observed from every angle. It is a tribute to the avant-garde originality of the very first Atmos clock.

Source of inspiration

This virtually perpetual mechanical movement houses 207 components. A variation of one degree in temperature is enough to power the Atmos for two days.

One creative spirit will always inspire another, and we have collaborated with aesthetic icons such as the designer Marc Newson and the house of Hermès to conceive special limited editions of the Atmos clock. Inspiration is thus re-invented from one era to the next.

Our relationship with Hermès, the celebrated luxury brand, goes back to 1928, and the Atmos clock provided a natural opportunity to pursue it. For his part, Marc Newson has worked with Jaeger‑LeCoultre on a number of occasions, bringing the same original vision and formidable intelligence each time.
