Created for the luxury brand Alfred Dunhill, the limited edition Atmos Regulator by Jaeger-LeCoultre is an outstanding timepiece that sits in a black varnished casing with a clear glass front. With 22 pieces put into production, this timepiece is set on a black shelf with a tinted glass background that features art deco designs inspired by Dunhill’s lighters and cigarette cases from the ‘30s. The shelf front is inlaid with black stingray leather, which has been used to express Dunhill’s heritage in luxury leather. The very sensitive 242-piece caliber-582 movement is powered just by small changes in temperature. Strikingly, a change of one degree will give the clock enough juice to run for 48 hours. While the spring of a traditional wristwatch oscillates 300 times on an average, the Atmos Regulator clock’s spring oscillates only twice a minute. Moreover, the clock uses 250 times less energy than a classic wristwatch. The Atmos Regulator is available now at Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques and retailers for a cool $70,600.
