The new Atmos Regulator clock demonstrates a nicely varnished black outer casing and a black support-shelf embellished with Art Deco designs against a tinted-glass background. The patterns have been inspired by those featured by Alfred Dunhill cigarette cases and lighters that were created in the 1930s.
The transparent glass front allows to admire the majestic workings of the in-house Atmos Calibre 582 movement. Built from 242 individual parts, the movement provides hours and minutes featured on two separate dials. In addition, it displays the months, 24 hours, and moon phases. The highly precise moon phase indicator will only deviate just one day from astronomically correct moon phases every 3,821 years.
The Dunhill Atmos Regulator operates due to the same principle as other Atmos clocks: a hermetically sealed capsule contains a mixture of gases that expand or contract depending on rising or dropping air temperature. This efficient method allows to generate enough energy to power the clock's functions.
As the circular balance spring has a much slower frequency than the balance spring of a traditional mechanical watch, one degree of temperature change is enough to provide power for 48 hours. It is remarkable that the Atmos clock requires 250 times less energy than a traditional wristwatch!
The various displays of the clock are rhodium-plated, while the black varnished hands perfectly match the case.
To make the clock perfectly level, and thus guaranteeing its ideal precision, its feet are provided with adjusting twist appliances. The case of the Jaeger-LeCoultre clock accommodates the spirit level that shows whether the desired result has been achieved.
