The company Lip was founded by Mr Emmanuel Lipmann. In 1867, Lipmann’s, a watchmaker son, had set-up a watch business in Besancon. In 1900, his sons Camille and Ernest took over and developed a true manufacturer, producing it own movement for pocket and wristwatches. Lip focus on precision watchmaking, endorsed by the national observatory in Besancon in 1936, when the company set a new timekeeping record. Then, Lip came with a tourbillon wristwatch with form movement, which appeared around 1948. In 1950, the company was producing 1000 watches per day with 650 employees. The Lip calibers were the T18 “Tonneau”, R25 “Ronde” to name a few. Lip was probably the first company in Europe to use the ubreakable “Elgiloy” mainspring. In 1950 and 1951, the French Tibet expedition entrusted their timekeeping to the robust “Himalaya” model. The President Charles de Gaulle wore a Lip as many celebrities. The company filed with bankruptcy in 1965.
