SOLD Nr. 099. Green Art Deco model Atmos clock, No LG 4, J. L. Reutter, France ca. 1930.
Special Art Deco design and color. No LG 4. White dial and Roman numerals.
Working: The Atmos clock contains a drum with an U-shaped tube containing mercury and a gas. Due to temperature changes a 'thermic' develops in the drum and causes the axle with the U-shaped tube to oscillate to and fro. Because of the continuous changes in temperature and atmospheric pressure there is a continuous oscillation witch causes the movement to roll permanently, we have a 'Pendule Perpetuele' Signature on the dial 'ATMOS Pendule Perpetuele, Brevets L.J.Reutter' .
The invention was the work of the French engineer Jean Leon Reutter. The clock is in a perfect condition.Original movement .
Very exclusive in this Art Deco design.
