Out there nowfor ?5,760. 00. Luxurious watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre is honoring artist Gustav Klimt's popular The? Kiss while using the Atmos? Marqueterie clock. In 1904, Klimt was commissioned by a Belgian financier to generate mural mosaics at a mansion in Brussels; one of the items the artist created was The? Kiss , the gilded portray which grew to become the emphasize of his Golden Period. Over a century? later, Jaeger-LeCoultre is celebrating? Klimt's function along with the ten-piece restricted version Atmos? Marqueterie clock.
The clock is housed within a cabinet comprised of more than one,400 small items of wooden, separately lower and gilded with gold leaf while in the same method utilised by Klimt, just before currently being glued alongside one another to create a hand-made marquetry motif. Different gold shades, ranging from yellow to pink, recreate the painting and its well-known shimmering glow. Only the most precious varieties of wood were employed, such as amboyna burl, camassari boxwood, ceylon? lemonwood, paolo amarela and madrona burl.
A button concealed inside of the motif opens on the cupboard to reveal the clock, housed in just a protective rhodiumed? crystal glass. The organic mother-of-pearl dials are decorated through the unique? displays of the hours, minutes, thirty day period and moon-phase indications. For the sixty minutes mark, a cushion-cut yellow sapphire marks the celestial zenith, although lozenge-shaped? petrified? wood decorates the hour-markers. A golden? moon in a very petrified wooden disc is set with brilliant-cut? diamonds, while the month wheel tops a silvertoned? brass crown. Blue varnished hands total the dial.
For the coronary heart of this clock beats a Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 582? perpetual system, driven completely by tiny thermal modifications in temperature. An hermetically sealed capsule that contains a gaseous mixture (initially mercury, just before its poisonous results turned recognized) dilates if the temperature rises and contracts when it drops. Related with? the clock's mainspring, the capsule or concertina performs like a mechanical lung? breathing in and out to wind the barrel in line with atmospheric fluctuations. Even the smallest variations in temperature generate the mechanism, guaranteeing an extra 48-hour power? reserve. In the meantime, its ring-type or annular stability oscillates just twice a? minute, using much less power than even a wristwatch. To be a result, that is a truly environmentally friendly clock - according to Jaeger-LeCoultre, it would take? 60 million Atmos clocks to match? the intake of the regular 15-watt gentle bulb!
