Actually, You Can Call It A Comeback!

Today something very, very special happened in France -

Today, Lip unveiled a very special project that they have been working on for some time. A new watch, inspired by a historic model, utilizing a movement of original design, that is assembled and adjusted in France. 

This is the Lip T18 Original. And to quote the poet - It is THE SHIT THAT KILLED ELVIS!

The movement's design is based on the original Lip Caliber T18. 

This is a very special piece, and will be limited to 118. 

I hope they have one left for purchase, I've already informed my "piggy bank" that it's about to lose weight as there is a certain American on the North Shore of Massachusetts who needs this in his life ; )

More to come on this in the next few days! This is really great news - A real French watch with very real French watch making tradition from one of my favorite brands in the world. 

And the T18 underscores the cooperative spirit found in Besançon. This project would not have been possible without the collaboration of some key players. But more on that next time!

Vive La Lip!
