Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos Clock with Original Bracket

About the Item

A beautiful Atmos Clock By Jaeger LeCoultre numbered 120482, with a square dial with gilded Arabic numerals and battens and smoked tip hands. Unusually this clock still has it’s original gilded wall bracket finished in a combination or grained and burnish gold plate. This example dates from 1960 and the mechanism is housed in a gilt brass case with a brushed pedestal. The glass sides allow you to see the ingenious movement for all angles. These Atmos Clocks come in variety of designs, and this stylish example of Mid-Century design is one of our favourites. The ‘Atmos’, first invented in 1928, has no external power source and never needs to be wound by hand. It isn’t powered by a suspended weight, as most pendulum clocks are. The Atmos clock gets its power from minute changes in atmospheric temperature, hence its name. Within a sealed capsule, a mixture of gases expand and contract with each temperature change. This is how the mechanism winds naturally without any human intervention. This clock has been overhaulled and comes with our 2 year guarantee.

  • A Regency Quarter Chiming Bracket Clock
    By A. & J. Thwaites
    Located in Amersham, GB
    A very fine triple fusee quarter chiming bracket clock in an ebonised case in remarkable original condition. The eight day triple fusee movement with anchor escapement and long heavy bob pendulum and hold fast, chimes on a nest of eight graduated bells with a seperate bell to strike the hours. The movement also has a pull correction lever. The cream painted roman dial is fitted behind the original convex glass held in with a brass ogee bezel, the case has front and rear locks with the movement visible through a glaze back door. The movement is housed in an oak case veneered in ebonised fruitwood with brass case decorations and fish scale sound frets backed with yellow silk, the break arch top is surmounted by a single brass bound pad. The dial and back plate both signed by Thomas Bray, the movement is also stamped J Thwaites 4677 on the front plate behind the dial. This leads us to believe this is one of the two clocks recorded as being made by Thwaites for Thomas Bray to retail. The serial number can be traced in the Thwaites day books and dates the clock to 1811. John Thwaites was a prolific clock maker who specialised in quarter chiming and musical clocks often manufacturing movements for some of London’s most prestigious clock makers. John Thwaites was Master of the Clockmakers Company in 1815, 1819 and 1820, his company eventually went on to found the famous Thwaites and Reed company. Examples of Thomas Bray’s work can be found in the British Museum, John Thwaites clocks...

  • A Twin Fusee Bracket Clock By Dent
    By Dent
    Located in Amersham, GB
    A striking two train bracket clock of exceptional quality by one of the great nineteenth century makers. The eight day twin fusee movement strikes on a blued steel gong behind a silvered arabic dial, signed Dent and numbered 58242 on both th dial and the back plate. Housed in a solid mahogany case with brass mounts and a gadrooned pergoda top surmounted by an acorn finial, and supported by bun feet. The sides ar pierced with attractive fish scale sound vents lined with dark blue velvet. The movement and case are both of remarkable quality, as you would expect from a clock made by Dent. The history of Dent & Co. spans three centuries of precision watch and clock making in Great Britain. Established in 1814 by Edward J. Dent, the company embraced the Victorian fervour for technological innovation and created precision chronometers to navigate the Royal Navy and guide some of the most intrepid explorers on their voyages. The British Empire was in full expansion and its maritime tradition had produced some remarkable technological breakthroughs from the late 18th century. Propelling the impetus of Britain’s primacy, Dent proved a key player in Victorian horological history manufacturing the Standard Clock at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich which was to keep “Greenwich Mean Time” the time to which all others in the Empire were referred (better known today as G.M.T.) and continued to do so until replaced by an electronic clock in 1946. Dent also made probably the most famous clock in the world - the Great Clock for the Houses of Parliament, familiarly known as Big Ben. Dent’s reputation soared and their chronometers accompanied some of the century's most influential and colourful explorers. Dent chronometer...
