That is quite a statement to back up. Well let us tell you about the Atmos Clock by Jaeger-LeCoultre.


First invented in 1928 by Swiss Jean-Leon Reutter and Jaeger LeCoultre, The Atmos Clock self-winds and keeps time on temperature change within the atmosphere, perpetually spinning the pendulum. This clock needs no winding, batteries of any kind, nor any electrical cords to keep it running. The Atmos Clock draws energy from changes in the air temperature within the room and is able to continue to run for years on end.

A temperature change of 1°Fahrenheit lets The Atmos Clock store enough energy for forty-eight hours. Due to these changes in air temperature The Atmos is able to build up and maintain an energy reserve for a whole year. As a result of this craftsmanship, the amount of energy it takes to light one 15 watt bulb would be enough to keep 60 million Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos Clocks running in endless motion.
