Atmos Classique and Atmos Classique Transparente

Operating precautions

The balance of the Atmos Classique clock, which is suspended from an extremely thin wire, absolutely must be blocked before any transport, even when it is just moved slightly (see section on Precautions for operation and transport), and to perform adjustments.

Atmos Classique

The Atmos Classique clock has two balance locking systems :

  • The first, accessible under the cabinet, should be used for transport.
  • The second, accessible after opening the door, is used when the clock is moved slightly.

Unlock the first locking system by completely loosening the screw located under the cabinet.

The second system, consisting of a blocking lever, should be released only after setting the time (see section on Setting the time).

Atmos Classique Transparente

The Atmos Classique Transparente clock has a balance blocking system, which can be accessed after opening the door and which must be released only after setting the time (see section on Setting the time).

To start the Atmos Classique clock, carry out the following operations.

Ensuring the clock is level

For your Atmos Classique clock to work correctly, its base should be perfectly horizontal.

To enable you to stabilise it suitably, it has a spirit level. To ensure correct operation, the bubble must be perfectly centred in the level.

Atmos Classique

The Atmos Classique clock rests on three feet, one of which is fixed (at the rear) while the other two are adjustable.  When you have placed your clock in its final location, you can easily perform level setting by screwing up or unscrewing the two mobile feet.

The Atmos Classique Transparente clock rests on three height-adjustable feet. Level adjustment can be carried out under each of the feet. When you have placed your clock in its final location, you can easily perform level setting by unscrewing each of the feet.

The Atmos Classique clock has a glazed door at the front, which can be released by pressing the door button downward and then pulling it slightly toward you. You can remove it by raising it.

Atmos Classique Transparente

The Atmos Classique Transparente clock has a glazed door at the front, which can be released by pulling the door button, and is then removed completely when you pull it towards you.

Do not slant the door too much when it is still in the groove of the base, so as to avoid damaging the bottom of the glass pane.

Setting the time

To set your Atmos Classique clock to the right time (and also for the summer/winter time change), move the minute hand forward with one finger.

Note : never turn the minute hand in the opposite direction and never touch the hour hand.

Never perform time setting without first making sure that the balance is blocked.
