Jaeger-LeCoultre’s New Atmos Marqueterie, Inspired by The Waiting

Jaeger-LeCoulter Atmos Marqueterie pays tribute to Gustav Klimt

Since 2008, Jaeger-LeCoultre has undertaken to pay homage to Gustav Klimt, an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement, that celebrated freedom and was determined to break free from the straightjacket of academic classicism.

At recently held SIHH 2013, visitors had a chance to see the fifth work in the series of Atmos clocks created in tribute to Gustav Klimt and inspired by The Waiting – part of the artist’s famous frieze adorning Stoclet House, a mansion built by a Brussels banker. The original marble and coloured stone mosaic has been faithfully rendered by a meticulous marquetry motif covering the glass crystal cabinet.

New Atmos clock has been running on air since 1928, without battery, electric current or winding. Like the work of Gustav Klimt, Atmos already belongs to the universal cultural heritage.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Atmos Marqueterie, which will be produced in a strictly limited 10-piece edition, combines the skills of the artistic crafts cultivated by the Manufacture with the fascination exercised by the Atmos clock.
