Inside its crystal clear cabinet made of anti-reflective glass, the Atmos Transparente clock displays a strikingly sober new face. From every angle – front, side or back – the vision is captivating and the equilibrium is perfect. The dial is embellished by an Art Deco-style. Hour-markers and hands follow a minimalist aesthetic. The base is satin-brushed and rhodium plated. Thanks to a very simple mechanism invented by engineer Jean-Léon Reutter in 1928 and brought to market by Jaeger-LeCoultre in the 1930s, the Atmos clock lives on air. Always as constant, always as accurate.

Virtually perpetual movement

A secret that is hidden in plain sight: just a single degree of variation in the room temperature, and the Atmos clock captures enough power to run for two entire days. A clear glass allows the components of its movement, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 563, to be admired from every angle. Each face of its transparent cabinet has been treated with a new anti-reflective coating. Now lovers of beautiful objects can enjoy every detail of this fascinating display of clockmaking at their own leisure.Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos Transparente

Aesthetic and chromatic harmony

The Atmos Transparente clock features a new glass dial that sets off its twelve hour-markers particularly well. Fine, perfectly straight, and of a deep black, they stand out sharply within this beautifully pared-back design. At the centre, two great, circling hands of the same colour mark off the passing hours and minutes. Strict, almost minimalist in their lines, these quintessential attributes form a harmonious contrast to the rounded fullness of the dial. These straight lines are housed within a circle, which itself sits inside a rectangle. Yet again, Jaeger-LeCoultre demonstrates its unique know-how, constantly striving to combine mechanical expertise with aesthetic precision – finding ways for opposing geometrical shapes to cohabit the same piece, complementing each other to perfection.Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos Transparente

In this Atmos Transparente, the virtually perpetual movement enjoys another occasion to reveal the mechanical genius and exceptional accuracy that characterise it. The environmental credentials of this iconic Jaeger-LeCoultre clock positioned it well ahead of its times, and the Atmos remains a must-have for lovers of fine things who delight in timeless objects of resolutely contemporary design.
