Normandie ATO Commissioned Clock information and photos at RLalique.com are tied together on this main Normandie ATO Commissioned Clocks page. Past and future auctions, historical details, sales, copies, reproductions, articles and more are all accessible from here. This page grows as more info is added to the website.

Note: This clock was created by ATO under a commission from the owner of the ocean liner Normandie (Compagnie Générale Transatlantique aka CGT) for the maiden voyage of the ship. It has the name NORMANDIE on the front in lieu of 9 of the expected numbers, and it has the prominently molded full name of CGT on the reverse in addition to ATO MADE IN FRANCE. There is also a later loose-copy of this clock made by ATO that in addition to other differences from this commissioned clock has the name NORMANDIE removed from the front and the boat owner's name removed from the reverse. Nearly 90 years after these clocks were made, we are aware of zero evidence that Rene Lalique had anything to do with either this commissioned clock, or the later ATO loose-copy. But many modern day sellers continue to make various ridiculous undocumented and unsupported vague claims of Lalique involvement. They never say specifically what his involvement was, only that he was somehow involved. The favorite catch-all word sellers use is collaboration. Of course if you ask the seller what exactly was Lalique's contribution to the collaboration, they cannot answer you because they have no evidence of any collaboration. We have listed both the commissioned clock and the later loose-copy clock properly identified on the main R. Lalique Clocks page only so that interested persons looking for information on "Normandie Clocks" can find them and read this statement and review our information. See our detailed Normandie Loose-Copy Clocks page for further details on both this Normandie Clock and the Loose-Copy Clock.

There is a later loose-copy of this commissioned clock by ATO. In addition to other distinguishable differences, it appears that starting with this clock, ATO removed the name Normandie from the front of the clock and then removed the prominently molded full name of the owner of the Normandie from the back of the clock. That later loose-copy is linked above.
