Jaeger-LeCoultre and Marc Newson present the Atmos 568
A play of light
A partnership that began in 2008 between Jaeger-LeCoultre and renowned designer Marc Newson has once again culminated in a horological masterpiece: the Atmos 568. Designed to showcase simplicity, with a majestic play of light and airiness, the crystal case immediately offers up the spotlight to the intricate time-keeping mechanism, which is seemingly floating on air.
"I was thrilled to have been asked to design an Atmos because it is a timepiece that I have loved since I first saw one when I was in my early teens," said Newson. "An Atmos for me is a complex and magical object, it seemingly runs on perpetual motion, or the closest thing to it, and it needs a constant environment to function in. It is as if it is a living thing – you have the feeling that it can sense your presence – which I find strangely comforting."
The transparent round dial, which features a month indicator and moon phase, is further accented with blue index markers, numerals and hands. At the back, the mechanical heart is in plain sight for full appreciation, including the designer's signature in his favoured orange tone.
