The history of the French watchmaker LIP starts in Besançon, in 1867, where its founder Emmanuel Lipmann launches a watchmaking workshop. Soon, his son Ernest upsets the discipline by creating the first phosphorescent dial, allowing a reading of the time even in the darkest recesses…
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.

In the spring of 1967, for the centenary of the company, LIP reveals an incredibly innovative watch for the time: the Grande Nautic-ski. First waterproof watch under water at 200 meters (20 atmospheres), the timepiece is equipped with a rotating bezel, located under the glass, allowing it to avoid any movement that could cause a nautical accident.
LIP GRANDE NAUTIC-SKI 671521
This LIP watch lives to the rhythm of a Miyota 821A automatic movement of great precision. Its robust stainless steel case, 41 mm in diameter, 15 mm thick, gives it an Old School look that will please fans of vintage timepieces …
The legendary waterproofness of the Nautic-ski is acquired thanks to the screwed down case back, guaranteeing a perfect impermeability.
The indexes and the very square shape of the hands reinforce the retro style of the watch. As for the colors, the contrast between the blue of the dial and the green glittering indexes makes the design of the original case and paradoxically very current.
The legibility of the indexes and hands is accentuated by a Luminova treatment. A non-radioactive component that makes the time readable, even in the darkest recesses …
Proudly labeled Made In France
The appearance of this automatic watch is deeply marked by two characteristics that make it special:
- The sapphire crystal, made in Switzerland, is both domed and reinforced. There is also a transparent mineral glass at the bottom of the case, allowing the wearer of the watch to appreciate the mechanism in action …
- The double crown of the Nautic-Ski gives it a resistant dimension and helps to seal the product. The first crown located at 2 o’clock, allows the adjustment of the internal bezel. The second, in turn, has the classic function of setting the time.
Finally, we find at 3 o’clock a date complication, always very useful in everyday life.
