The Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos clock is not a clock that should be attempted by a novice repairman. Good quality tools, a steady hand and years of experience repairing clocks is a must before tackling any Atmos clock repair. If you break anything on the Atmos clock parts are very hard to come by and for the model 540 they are very very hard to find. To ensure the best operating conditions, please place your Atmos clock on an absolutely stable horizontal surface, where there is no risk of vibration or shock. Once started, the clock should not be moved: cleaning the cabinet or the base should be carried out without handling or moving the clock. Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos Clock Repair Specialist.

Atmos Clock Shipping Instructions
Shipping your Atmos Clock to us for repair is fairly simple and providing that you follow the Instructions as outlined here on this page, your clock will arrive to us safely.
1. Before packing your clock first lock the Pendulum in place by sliding the Pendulum Locking Lever all the way to the right. Moving or shipping an Atmos clock without locking the Pendulum can cause damage to the movement. The Pendulum locking lever is either underneath the front of the clock or underneath the Dial, depending on the model.
When packing, do not place anything inside the movement area of the clock.
If your clock has ' Case locking pins' on the sides, make certain these pins are securely fastened into place before packing the clock.
Use two sturdy boxes (see photo below):
2. Place the clock in a clean plastic bag and pack the clock in a small box first, using plenty of packing material. Place that box in a larger box again use plenty of packing material in between both boxes (see photo). You can use your original Atmos factory packing material for the inside packaging, if that is available.
Note: Boxes and packing material are sold at most major office supply stores and / or stores that ship packages. You can also find boxes and packaging at U-Haul and Ryder stores.
Shipping Your Clock
We recommend UPS or FedEx when shipping your Atmos clock; both companies now offer economy ground shipping and both are very reliable. Both UPS and FedEx have Customer drop-off locations and many office supply stores offer shipping through both companies as well. You can also call UPS or FedEx directly and schedule a pick-up at your home.
IMPORTANT: Be certain to place adequate Insurance on your clock when shipping; $1,500 of insurance value (or higher) is suggested.
We will not begin any repairs to your clock until we receive your authorization.
Atmos Clock Repair – The Overhaul:
Every Atmos Clock we sell or service comes with complete ultrasonic cleaning, oiling, and bellow inspection and more. We measure the expansion and contraction of the bellows under a varied temperature test. If the unit is no longer expanding and contracting properly it will be flat and need our in house refill.

We have built a great reputation out of many years of high quality service and sale of our Atmos Clocks. Curtis Holman graduated from watchmaking school in 1978 and his son Michael Holman created the website naming it after his father and has serviced over 100 Atmos since 2013.
Authorized independent watchmaker account with Richemont North America for authentic original Jaeger LeCoultre clock parts.
Many of these vintage clocks merely need a mainspring overhaul (pulling the mainspring out, cleaning it, and application of fresh watch oil) because the oil has dried up over the years. Note: Do not attempt to oil the an Atmos Clock externally.
A running clock will typically double the price value of the clock. One Year Guarantee on all work and parts.
Atmos Clock Overhaul: Clean movement, Oil, Bellow test, Light case polish, Clean Glass, Put clock in beat, Poise pallet fork, and other adjustments : $350 – Takes a couple months to return home. This is the attention that the majority of Atmos will require to run again. I start with this process and if the clock will not keep time, we know that it needs a new suspension wire.
Bellow Refill: $100 (Click here for more information about Atmos Clock Bellow Refill)
Bellow Replacement: $300
Chain Soldering: $45 – Fine Solder application to repair broken chain.
Suspension Wire: $200 – Could take several of months to return home. Timekeeping is the importance to observe and adjust properly. The owner can see that the wire is broken by unlocking the balance. This is a great price for a tedious repair.
Dial Restoration: $185 in Deep Blue Metal-Flake Lapis, White, Silver, and more. All Come with LeCoultre under the 12 and Swiss under the 6.
Black Marble Atmos Clock Base W/ Dedication Plate: $185 with this the clock becomes the home’s centerpiece. Also a great way to dedicate an Atmos Clock to anyone!
