Tabling the Atmos Hermes Clock by Jaeger-LeCoultre
The Atmos table clock by Hermes, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Les Cristalleries.
Here’s what each one brought to the table. You start off with an Hermes clock that forms the base of this air-like masterpiece. The brand pulls the strings on all design elements and specs, to create a timepiece that can champion its predecessors.
The first move is to integrate a unique mechanism by Jaeger-LeCoultre. Known as Atmos, it uses temperature fluctuations (even the minutest degree), to motion the mainspring of the clock, and act almost like a winding mechanism. While it all might sound too complicated (leave it to the experts), what you need to know is the Atmos Hermes Clock needs no battery, no electric current, and no real winding of any sorts.
With the mechanism sorted, Hermes solicited Les Cristalleries to create a spherical structure that would enclose the clock and lend an exquisite appearance to the timepiece. The idea to create something light, almost transparent was translated with a hand crafted approach, using fine glass, crystal, white enamel rhodium and a delicate metal framework to bind it all together.
A sparkly finish with 15 jewels makes this limited-to-176 edition worth the prime spot in your living room or bedside table.
