The Atmos Hermes Clock doesn't look like a timepiece so much as it does a futuristic device for something either really good or really evil. It's a good thing that it is a clock that is only meant to tell time. Taking on an orb shape and covered in perforations, the Atmos Hermes Clock is a visually striking design that would become the center of attention in any commercial or residential space.

A collaboration between Hermes, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Saint-Louis, the Atmos Hermes Clock encloses an Atmos clock, the world's only mechanical timepiece that does not require any winding from a human hand, in a crystal globe. According to Uncrate, "it uses changes in the surrounding temperature to interact with a gas-filled capsule that expands and contracts to wind the movement."
