A Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos II Escapement show model.
The demonstrator model from the 1940’s shows how an Atmos works.
The model has two units.
First the clock where you can see the barrel motor and
the second unit shows the temperature situation on a display.
So you can see the interaction of temperature fluctuations and the function of the barrel motor.
The barrel expands an contracts and winding up the main spring.
The hands moving but the pendulum is fixed.
Very nice and heavy wooden and metal case.The model works with 110 or 220 Volt (swich at the motor). Text on the front plate
The Atmos “Aero Motor” is a precisely constructed metal bellows which expands and contracts as the temperature rises or falls. It is powered by minute changes in temperature. Thus Atmos is kept running without winding without electicity, without human intervention of any kind. Atmos is the brilliant conception of a phyacist, and is made by LeCoultre, “Makers of the Most Exceptional Watches and Clocks in All the World”
