The RALLYE automatic chronograph

 From Lip!

Now a note of 100% transparency, I am currently working with Lip of Besançon to help bring Lip watches to North America. So you are going to just get the facts. But I will take pains to say that Lip bringing out a mechanical chronograph is proof positive about just how seriously Berards are taking their roll as the new caretakers of the Lip legacy.

But let's get back to the matter at hand.

So yes, I did get to see some of the early prototypes when I visited last November, and it has not been easy to keep quiet to help save the surprise.  But now it is official.
