Jaeger-LeCoultre has just introduced a new take on its iconic Atmos Clock. With a history dating back to 1928, the Atmos Clock was engineered by Jean-Léon Reutter, and can run perpetually without batteries or winding. The clock is charged with the slightest drop or rise in temperature, where a single change in degree can power the clock for two whole days.

In keeping with the Art Deco style that the Atmos Clock has been known for throughout the decades, this new Atmos Transparente (transparent) sits in a case made from anti-reflective glass, and also features a full-glass dial, a rhodium finished base, and is powered by a JLC Caliber 563. The entire clock appears to float in mid-air while the backing hides the majority of the clock’s 217 components.

Priced at $9,450 USD, those looking for a more minimal take on the iconic Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos Clock can find it now over at Jaeger-LeCoultre’s web store.
