Why Everyone Should Own an Atmos Clock & Its Benefits
The Atmos clock was invented in 1928 by Jean-Léon Reutter and today is manufactured by the Jaeger LeCoultre Company, in Vallée De Joux, located in the Swiss Jura Mountains. These watches are unique as they extract energy from temperature variations, allowing perpetual motion. Aside from having a taste for exquisite items, there are many benefits to owning an Atmos clock.

How an Atmos Clock Works
There is a sealed capsule inside the clock that holds a mixture of gas and liquid. The gas and liquid expand when the temperature rises and contracts when it falls. This routine makes the capsule move which constantly manipulates the mainspring, essentially allowing it to self-wind. The slightest temperature variation will allow for days of operation. Because the temperature is constantly fluctuating, the Atmos clock will run forever, even if left untouched.
