Indeed, the clock Atmos 568 can run independently of any human intervention. This one uses the temperature fluctuations knowing that a single degree can bring the clock two days of autonomy. Then, the gear trails need no oil, which would interfere with the running of the clock. A true wonder for all connoisseurs that will pay 27.600€ to buy it!
