Jacques Parquet Air Clock Continues The Classic

In 1904, Belgian financier Adolphe Stoclet asked the painter Gustav Klimt to create mosaic frescoes for a luxurious palace. The Brussels-based palace was designed by architect Josef Hoffmann. Among the many paintings in the palace, Klim’s famous painting ‘Le Baiser’ embodies his outstanding achievements in decorative arts. For a century, Klimt’s work still exudes strong vitality and charming artistic charm.

To pay tribute to this painting, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents a new Atmos Marqueterie parquet air clock. This air clock is limited to ten in number. It is a new interpretation of the Art Nouveau by Jaeger-LeCoultre, which perfectly reflects its artistic value. The bell of the air clock completely duplicates the painting ‘Kiss’, and infused with rare and exquisite craftsmanship, only this craft can show the extraordinary painter of the Austrian symbolist painter.
The clock case of the Atmos air clock is composed of more than 1,200 pieces of precious wood cut individually. The wood pieces are either kept in their natural state or pasted with gold foil using Klimt’s painting techniques, and then pasted together piece by piece, and a luxurious hand-finished parquet is born. Adhering to the excellence of the details of the Jaeger-LeCoultre “Great Workshop”, the craftsmen gave gold foil different shades of gold and rose gold to make the whole painting come to life and highlight its gorgeous and colorful characteristics. The entire painting is based on Ambon wood burr boards and is adorned with precious wood chips with a variety of brown and orange-toned wood textures. In the paintings, the colors of the kamasarari boxwood and the ceylon lemon wood complement each other, and the Brazilian cherry wood and the montana wood tree tumors complement each other. Maple and pear wood are combined, Liriodendron burr is paired with walnut; and arbor burr is decorated with Andean boxwood. This art treasure takes hundreds of hours to complete. In addition to the mastery of mastery of fine wood inlay, the master of fine wood inlay must also possess profound artistic accomplishments, because this is the key factor that determines the beauty of the entire work.
Just touch the hidden button on the clock case, and the clock case will slowly open, showing the delicate mechanical device of the Atmos air clock. After the bell case door is opened, the inner bell case made of crystal glass is displayed, and the built-in air bell witnesses the passage of time perfectly and precisely. In addition to the normal hour and minute display, this air clock can also display the month and phase on the clock dial. The details of the function display are decorated on the natural mother-of-pearl display panel to form a dazzling pattern, which perfectly echoes the exquisite painting of wood gold-plated tone on the clock case. A pillow-cut yellow sapphire is solemnly inlaid at the 60-minute position, symbolizing the zenith, while the other time scales are made of diamond-shaped siliconized wood, symbolizing the earth. The gold-plated moon pattern is on a light and dark contrasting background: it is engraved on a brown disk made of siliconized wood, surrounded by bright-cut diamonds, like the stars in the sky under the night. The moon runner wears a crown made of silver-plated brass for the moon pattern, showing elegance and modernity. The circular disk surface, clearly visible mechanical gears and golden brown mechanical rotating parts echo the Klimm-designed Arabic decorative pattern, linking the past with the present in the same space.
Atmos air clock is clearly inseparable from time. Its style is quiet and solemn, and it has witnessed 80 years since its birth. Its nearly-permanent mechanical device can obtain power only with slight changes in temperature. Today, although the Atmos air clock has been improved and perfected, its operating principle is still the same: it provides kinetic energy for the clock operation through small changes in temperature. The mystery lies in that: a sealed cover is filled with mixed mercury vapor, and the gas expands due to the increase in temperature and shrinks due to the decrease in temperature. The sealed cover is like a mechanical lung, breathing with the change of the surrounding air temperature, and its contraction and expansion movement winds the mainspring, thereby driving the clock. Temperature changes of one degree Celsius can provide power for 48 hours of operation. The ring balance is an example of energy saving: it vibrates twice a minute, and its energy consumption is 250 times lower than that of an ordinary watch that vibrates 300 times a minute. This is not only a timepiece clock, but also an energy-saving and environmentally-friendly mechanical device. Its energy consumption is extremely small-the total energy consumption of 60 million Atmos air clocks is only equivalent to the energy required to light a 15-watt light bulb.
