An engineering marvel: the Atmos clock
The Atmos table clock was invented by engineer Jean-Leon Retter in 1928. Their movement was perfected by the Swiss jewelers of the Jaeger-LeCoultre company, and since then this watch has accurately measured the passage of time.
How the Atmos clock works
The watch is considered a miracle of engineering: a mixture of gases is inside a sealed capsule. When the temperature drops, these gases are compressed, and when the temperature rises, they expand. The spring is energized by this capsule, so the watch mechanism is constantly running. In this case, the mechanism requires very little energy. In order for the clock to run for two days, a temperature change of one degree is sufficient. The plant is produced without the slightest human intervention.
Classic models are available in cases made of copper, steel and gold plated. There are exclusive models that craftsmen work on using sophisticated craft techniques. The unique design of the famous watch allows you to observe the work of a complex mechanism from all sides.
Many statesmen and famous people have used Atmos watches. Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin and J.F. Kennedy were their owners.
