Gilt Atmos clock, enamel dial, J. L. Reutter, nr. 344, France ca. 1930.

Gilt case, transparency through the five glasses. Clock with a enamel dial and Roman numerals, Breguet hands. On the back numbered 344. A low number means early specimen.

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. Case and movement authentic, original gilding. Very exclusive in this Art Deco design.
