LIP was founded in 1867 and has certainly been through a lot, though before those tough times in the 70/80s they made some very innovative and funky watches, this was certainly one of them! LIP has been reborn and is producing some very great re-issues, they even have one of this watch in Automatic, but this being the OG Electronic, worlds 2nd electronic watch, it is a special watch!
Let's not forget that this also has a super compressor case with inner bezel, plus it's original cross-hatched crowns! It doesn't get much better than this, it is also paired on a very fitting vintage bracelet that suits the watch very well!
Points of Mention
The watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or papers. The luminous material on the dial and hands is aged evenly and missing a small amount on the hour hand. The crowns operate the watch, though are a little tight. The movement can be a little temperamental after changing the time and stop, with a small shake it continues fine, strongly recommend a service!
Granted! This watch is definitely showing some age and would have seen some better days... It's a true watch, honest and incredible. When I get a vintage watch like this in I get very excited! These are the kind of things that get my gears going. Don't hang about on this one!
