Re: lip 'STYLE' • LCD

Very nice digital watch you've got there, Reno. I'd not heard of the Lip watch brand before. Looks like they're very much inspired by Braun, based on the watch designed I've now seen from my initial searches. This LCD watch looks to be Junghans inspired as well. I've not been able to find out much about it. Amazon has it for sale with a leather strap, but no useful info provided. What are its functions, battery life and water resistance?

lip is a 1908 french brand (but the "trading post Lipmann" clock worshop in Besançon goes back to 1867 ;-)

I'm not adamant, but I think Braun's watches (very nice too) history merely goes back to 1970 :think:

About this specific watch, I think (but I'm not 100% sure) it was designed by Prisca Briquet, like the TYPE A "Automythic" (for this one, it's a clear positive ;-) )






The "lip style" line is not the regular/historical lip line, it's mostly aimed at mall boutiques or catalog/online sales. So it's always difficult to get infos about these watches. To get the point : they're destined to the general public, not the WIS ;-)

There's even a third line, "subscriptions watches" one gets for a magazine subscription :

The "real" lip line can be found here : Montres LIP Créateur : marque française de montre homme / femme

lip history (timeline) : History


Another historical example, the Mach 2000 from designer Roger Tallon :

https://www.watchuseek.com/f78/lip-mach-2000-led-664455.html






What are its functions, battery life and water resistance?
Basic functions : Hour/Min/Sec Date function (Day-Date-Month) Alarm+Hour beep

1/100th chronograph with LAP mode.

WR = 50m

Re: lip 'STYLE' • LCD

fantastic LCD LIP , I especially like the three buttons on top...
Thanks Iggy Tee :)

Yup, they're quite nice. The engravings on the side are pretty cool too.



It took quite a long time to lay my hands on this watch… more than two years actually.

When it first came out, years ago, I barely noticed it, and at this time, I wasn't interested in quartz watches anymore.

But two years ago, I became infatuated with the idea of owning a simple, clean, basic, pure LCD steel watch.

I really love this Rosendhal :



Great watch :-!

But it was a bit too pricey for a basic LCD watch for my taste :-(


Then began the hunt


Believe it or not, it's incredibly hard to find a new 100% steel LCD watch. Most of them have plated resin, and I was adamant about wanting a steel watch.

There was the vintage path, of course, especially with very nice SEIKOs… but nothing simple & clean, like the Rosendhal…


Finally, I remembered this lip… but it was out of stock, then o|


Ultimately, a private sale came right on purpose ; the model I wanted was there, available, and at a great price ! :-!

Really love this watch ! :)

Re: lip 'STYLE' • LCD

Although I am a fan of old LCD watches, and in the modern one can find very nice models ,here's one, perhaps soon I get one Pulsomatic.

Video découverte Hamilton Pulsomatic par Montresdesign - YouTube
Of course, this Hamilton is a pure wonder |> |> |> |> but again, much more out of my price range ;-)

Other dream models are those produced by VENTURA :

I got the lip for… 40€ !!!! (public price was around 100€) :-d
