Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos Clock Silvered Dial

About the Item

Fully Stripped Cleaned & Serviced From our Clock collection, we are delighted to offer this Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos clock. The Atmos clock with four glass domed case and canted corners modelled as their flagship 519 design. The Atmos clock beautifully engineered with a central bellows which drives the clock via expansion and contraction. The clock is finished with a silvered dial seen on early models such as this, gilded numerals and blue steel screws. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos clock dates to circa 1945 and bares the reference number 19976 dating it to pre-1950. Jaeger-LeCoultre were founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre and have grown to become one of the world's leading luxury watch and clock manufacture from Switzerland. The company has hundreds of inventions, patents, and more than one thousand movements to their name, including the world's smallest movement, one of the world's most complicated wristwatches (Grande Complication), and a timepiece of near-perpetual movement (the Atmos clock). Atmos Clock founded in 1928, the clock is driven by a mainspring which is wound by the expansion and contraction of a liquid and gaseous ethyl chloride in an airtight chamber called bellows. When the temperature rises the ethyl chloride vaporises and expands compressing a spring and, when the temperature falls the gas condenses and the spring expands. The continuous motion winds the mainspring giving enough energy to run the entire clock. A 1-degree change in temperature is enough to run an Atmos clock for 4.3 days! For timekeeping, a torsion pendulum is used as it consumes far less energy than that of an ordinary pendulum as it twists on the end of the wire instead of swinging left to right. The motion is 30 times slower than that of a typical long case clock pendulum. Other than very occasional servicing due to wear the clock runs itself without any human intervention making them extremely hassle free with a totally silent movement. Service All our Atmos clocks have been meticulously stripped, cleaned and serviced by our in house expert so you can buy with confidence. This ensures that all our clocks are guaranteed to run when purchased and correctly set up. All clocks will be sent with a step-by-step instruction guide on how to unpack and set correctly.

  • English Silver Engraved Decanter Widdowson & Veale
    By Alexander MacRae
    Located in Newark, England
    The Decanter of slim tapered form with bulbous body, splayed circular foot with pinched stem and shaped opening. The Decanter extensively decorated throughout the body with two large fern leaves stemming from a central tied ribbon in the form of a bow. The decanter features a rounded handle fitted to the upper half of the decanter with a hinged shaped lid opening with gravity. To the base of the decanter an engraving reading “Jesse Collings. from I. Chamberlain.” Hallmarked to the neck AM (Alexander Macrae), Lion passant (sterling silver), Leopard Head town mark for London, Date letter R (1872) and the sovereign head duty mark. The Decanter is complete with its original latched fitted box lined in purple velvet with gold stringing to the exterior and the retailers mark to the inside doors “Widdowson & Veale, Goldsmith & Jewellery, to the Court of Spain, 73 Strand London.” Widdowson & Veale George Widdowson (b. 1804 Lincoln – Died 1872 Dulwich Village) was a celebrated silversmith and goldsmith although he took the route of retailer rather than a craftsman and by the age of 28 he had taken over his uncle’s London shop on the Strand, London. His uncle John Salter had been a close friend of Lord Nelson’s daughter, Horatia, and was godfather to one of her children. The shop was very successful and John Salter had supplied Nelson with many pieces of jewellery, including mourning rings. Widdowson developed the shop into Widdowson & Veale located at No. 73 Strand on the corner of Adam Street and opposite the Adelphi. Widdowson had a real eye for marketing. He once had a detailed newspaper article dedicated to his proposal to make a copy of Aeneas’ shield, as described in Virgil’s Aeneid. There is no evidence the shield was ever made though it did get good publicity. The company made swords and other weapons for the British army and navy, orders and decorations for the British court and were goldsmiths and jewellers to the court of Spain. In 1842 on the christening of Queen Victoria’s eldest son (later King Edward VII), Widdowson’s eye for publicity meant that the firm gave a christening gift of ‘an immense silver coronet supporting the Prince of Wales feathers.’ Widdowson & Veale were also makers to HRH the Duke of Sussex and the Court of Spain. In 1844, George was 40 and his business was doing well, as was the economy as a whole. The firm were able to advertise for apprentices, asking for a premium of £100. On 11 February 1847 George married Eliza Duffield (nee Boville), the daughter of a Putney wine merchant who had been living in Gibraltar but returned when her first husband, John Duffield, died. George and Eliza were middle-aged when they married and did not have children. Alexander Macrae founder of the firm that went on to be C J Vander Ltd. Macrae was recorded at 32 Bow Street, Covent Garden, London September 1856. He was joined in partnership by Martin Goldstein c. 1870, whereupon the style of the firm was changed to Macrae & Goldstein – first listed in 1871 as a silversmith. Alexander Macrae supplied many of the great firms at that time such as Elkington, Harry Emanuel...
