A fine example of a LeCoultre Atmos perpetual motion 15 jewel mantel clock, s/n #280500, probably dating to the 1960s or 1970s. The Clock self-winds and keeps time on temperature change, perpetually spinning the pendulum. First invented in 1928 by Swiss Jean-Leon Reutter and Jaeger LeCoultre. For the past 50 years it has been the official gift for diplomats by the Swiss Confederation. Notable Atmos Clock Owners include: John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Charles De Gaulle, Sir Winston Churchill, Pope Jean-Paul 2, Richard Nixon, Charlie Chaplin, James McDivitt and Edgar White, King Hussein of Jordan, Princess Irene of the Netherlands, Ronald Reagan, and many others. The clock will run for short periods, and then stop, so some adjustment would be needed. Otherwise, very good overall condition with some imperfections and minimal wear from age and use. Dimensions: 9 ⅛” h x 8 ¼” w x 6 ¼” d. Comes with its original box.
