The Calibre 526-5 movement is stamped with the serial number 422322.
This model has a very clear white Roman numeral chapter ring dial with dark-tipped dagger style hands.
Atmos clocks are known as perpetual motion clocks, as they require no winding. An aneroid chamber mounted on the back of the movement contains a mixture of liquid and gas which expands and contracts with movements in temperature, and this motion winds the mainspring. Even a one degree change in temperature is sufficient to wind the clock for 2 days' duration.
The movement has a rotating pendulum balance and torsion escapement.
