Your home is already beautiful, but for those looking to give it a real edge, consider the role time plays in it. You look at the clock when you get up in the morning, get ready for work, put the kids to bed at night and so much more than you realize.
While a clock is not a necessary item in today’s digital world, it is a functional piece of art and décor – especially when selected wisely. For centuries, people’s homes have been measured as standards of elegance and stature based on the clocks that resided therein. From table clocks to grandfather clocks and eventually wall clocks, time is a statement in taste as well as punctuality.
One superb statement maker today is the Atmos Clock from Jaeger-LeCoultre. Back in 1928, the Atmos clock was first introduced to the market as a revolutionary timepiece. The concept behind it – the clock could run without needing to be set or managed after its initial setting thanks to the fact that it is regulated by minuscule changes in temperature. Developed by engineer Jean-Leon Reutter, the Atmos clock and was immediately embraced by the luxury watch brand Jaeger-LeCoutlre, which purchased the design and made what is now an iconic collection.
