Long fascinated with mantle clocks and a passionate fan of the Atmos (a mechanism that runs on temperature differential alone) Marc was approached by Swiss watch and clock manufacturer Jaeger-LeCoultre to design an 80th anniversary edition of their Atmos clock.

The Atmos 561 by Marc Newson is housed in a specially hand-blown Baccarat crystal case which acts to protect the precious mechanism which appears to float suspended as if by magic. The end result is an intriguing and almost magical object, not unlike a ship in a bottle.

Edition of 888.
