Hello Everyone, please excuse my absence, I am in the process of relocating back to Las Vegas, Nevada next week. I miss you all & will be back in touch soon. Until then I will post this 1950's Jaeger-LeCoultre ATMOS perpetual motion clock from Switzerland I just picked up today at the Goodwill for $10 and it works like a gem.
You all are the coolest cats I've ever met, and I can't wait to play catch up.
Time as measured by an Atmos clock entails dimensions beyond human understanding: this Caliber 519 model loses only one day every 3821 years. It never needs to be rewound or the need of batteries. It is powered by bellows that expand & contract from atmospheric temperature changes, there for this clock will keep time on it's own for many milleniums. The design was invented in the late 1920's and are still available and made in Geneva, Switzerland. Unfortunately they are extremely expensive, but they are an amazing example of science & engineering.
