Atmos clock information

Atmos Clock technique

The Atmos clock is a mechanical torsion pendulum clock which does not need to be wound manually. The Atmos clock gets the energy to run from changes in temperature and atmospheric pressure. The Atmos clock can run for years without using batteries or human intervention.

Who is the inventor of the Atmos Clock?

Jean-Léon Reutter, an engineer from Switzerland created the first Atmos clock in 1928. This prototype, where the Atmos name comes from, is now known unofficially as Atmos 0. The Atmos 0 was driven by a mercury-in-glass expansion device and the mechanism operated on temperature changes only.
