Rare tall model nickel case, extremely rare with the skeletonised dial, transparency through the four glasses. Clock with Arabic numerals on silvered dial. On the back signed ‘Brevet J.L. Reutter, S.G.D.G.’ and numbered 6179.

Working: The Atmos clock contains a drum with a U-shaped tube containing mercury and a gas. Due to temperature changes a thermics 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 there is a continuous oscillation which causes the movement to roll permanently, we have a ‘Pendule Perpétuelle’. The invention was the work of the French engineer Jean Léon Reutter. The clock is in a perfect condition.
