About Atmos Clocks
As the temperature rises with the sun in the morning and descends in the evening as the sun goes down, these atmospheric changes constitute all of the fuel your Atmos clock requires to keep ticking and tocking, indefinitely. The engineering marvel of an Atmos clock actually derives from technology that is centuries old, despite its seemingly post-modern design and incredible efficiency. The vast inventory on eBay includes various models of Atmos clocks, from different design eras and of different materials and appearance. A Swiss-made half-century-old Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos clock 528-8 can still keep time as good as new with scratch-free glass and graceful parts ready to resume their smooth perpetual motion. Whether in a regal domed glass enclosure or sturdy cube shape, an Atmos clock looks stately and captures the imagination on any mantel, shelf, or desk. A metal and glass structure with square or circular clock faces are the norm, although rare walnut-bodied Atmos clocks are occasionally for sale. Warm, gold-toned brass captures the light, while its intricate barometric operation is a conversation-starter every time. Atmos clocks make excellent and generous anniversary or retirement gifts and are also cherished collector's items.
