Notes

The Art Deco era was an amazing time of experimenting with new designs, shapes
and materials and Jaeger LeCoultre just like Cartier were, at the time, at the top of
their game in their clock designs. Experimenting with new types of plastics such
as bakelite and ambrolite, this possibly unique orange example is stunning by its
organic almost floral case design and the vivid color. In extremely good condition for
its age, it is a rare addition to the collector of rare Atmos clocks.
