The Atmos Clock is a Jaeger-Lecoultre mechanical creation. What’s so special? Well, it does not need to be wound. It absorbs energy from minute changes in temperature and atmospheric pressure. It is reported that it can ran for years without deliberate intervention by humans. The first Atmos Clock, Atmos 0 as it was called, was powered by a mercury-in-glass expansion device that enables it to source energy from temperature changes alone. How much a change? Try one degree. Just a degree change in air temperature can wind the Atmos Clock for two full days. This creative and engineering marvel isn’t the only feat in Jaeger-Lecoultre’s portfolio. Being one of the four “Old Ladies” of horology, Jaeger-Lecoultre has mastered every complication invented. Jaeger Lecoultre shares its 180 areas of watch-making profession expertise to the world with every watch that comes out the factory. With their latest addition to their collections in 2012, Jaege-Lecoultre moves forward with the Duomètre. “With the revolutionary creation of the Dual-Wing mechanism, the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre has not only conceived a feature that has given rise to a new watch collection called Duomètre, it has quite simply added a whole new chapter to the history of watchmaking.", said Jérôme Lambert the CEO of Jaeger-LeCoultre. This continuous success is made possible by the eternal quest for perfection and balance. And there is no doubt that Jaeger-Lecoultre has struck greatness already for bringing into existence some of the finest time pieces and watches in the world.
