A few decades later, LIP watches will be worn by legends of the 20th Century, such as General de Gaulle, Bill Clinton and Sir Winston Churchill.

The LIP Churchill T24 watch, also known by its code name 671282, is a true historical piece of the French brand. From the mid-1960s, the LIP design office was busy producing a quartz caliber (T24). Intended for use in ladies’ watches, this caliber, which uses simplified time setting, was finalized at LIP in 1969 by Robert Bischoff, Gérard Falin, André Voisard and Roland Plumet. LIP’s technical services will improve the T24 by making the central second hand even more reliable.

The size of this historical model is above all a real surprise for the Conteenium’s team. At a time when the current trend sets a diameter between 42 and 24 mm, the LIP company has chosen a return to a more modest size, flirting with the vintage style, perfectly suited male cuffs of small sizes …
The first peculiarity of the LIP Churchill is undoubtedly its reinforced glass, giving the case a convex front face. It’s a classic mineral glass that has been chosen, It offers a good visibility to the movement.
Once worn, the rectangular case embraces the wrist with great ease, allowing the watch to slide easily under a slim-fitting shirt or a tight-fitting sweater at the forearm.
The silver stainless steel bracelet is timeless. You will probably appreciate the high-end butterfly buckle, allowing a quick wrist setting of the timepiece.
The caliber Isa France 336.168 has a complication located at 6 o’clock, offering the bearer of the timepiece a small second.
We also appreciate the great waterproof case – for a classic watch – of 30 meters. So you can wash your hands or shower, without removing your beautiful quartz timepiece…
