Yes, my clock has someone else’s name on it- this is typical of these “presentation model” clocks- the plaque could be removed but, until I have the clock fully restored, I’m leaving it in place. Clay Whitelock’ might be, and what it would be like to be in the “Million Dollar Club” in 1960 when a million dollars was actually a lot of money.
The finish is degraded, in some places pretty badly, but there are no cracks or obvious bends in the frame or glass.
But the clock thing has stuck with me throughout my life.
As a kid, one of the things I enjoyed about visiting “old people” was seeing their mantle or grandfather clocks: all these amazing precision devices, ticking and bonging out the passage of our lives.
I purchased it on e Bay a few weeks ago, and it is the first thing I have actually received from my adventures there.
You might reasonably ask “what the heck is an ‘Atmos’, and what’s the big deal?
I’m hoping it keeps going: what I’d like to do is have the clock for a few years to enjoy it before sending it off for a complete mechanical and cosmetic rebuilding.
In 1928, Jean-Léon Reutter created the first Atmos, a clock which literally “runs on air”.
It is an extraordinarily precise and delicate mechanism wound through the expansion and contraction of a sealed capsule of gas and liquid.
I discovered Atmos clocks entirely by accident after successfully bidding on a 130 year old mantle clock, currently on its way to me from Germany.
Atmos is probably one of the most unique clocks currently being manufactured.
