The fabled Atmos clock, produced by the luxury Swiss watchmaking manufacturer Jaeger-LeCoultre, dates to 1928. It requires no battery, electric current or winding, but rather a gaseous mixture within the hermetically closed capsule expands and contracts with any fluctuations in temperature, continually powering the clock's movement. In 2008, Marc redesigned Atmos in a limited-edition of only 888 copies; that reimagination was used as the basis for this customised unique piece.
