The LIP Nautic-Ski Auto–Faithful Super Compressor Reissue

by Michael Stockton "If you’re a student of the vintage game, then you’ve likely heard of LIP watches. The French brand was founded in 1867 and created some rather innovative pieces before going through some difficult times in the mid 1970’s and 1980’s. If you’re an electronic watch fun, LIP deserves credit by introducing the world’s 2nd electronic watch (ok, electromechanical) in 1952 and the first with a date. During the 1960’s and 1970’s, LIP also distributed other brands as well such as Breitling. LIP even had some of their own designs built by Breitling in Breitling cases."
