LIP Baschmakoff Jump Hour Stainless Steel Brown Finish

Designer: Prince Francois de Baschmakoff

Design year: 1971

The Stainless Steel Baschmakoff Jump Hour - one of the earliest designs in the designer LIP series of the early seventies by Prince Francois De Baschmakoff.

Time is shown through a porthole exposing spinning discs that line up for the time.  A wide tapered leather strap lays over the top of the case and are interchangeable with other size and color variations (also available for sale).

In the 1960s and 1970s, LIP enlisted a handful of top French industrial designers, architects, interior decorators, and graphic designers to bring their truly original ideas of timekeeping to life in a series of watches. Among them was the prolific Roger Tallon, who designed everything from high-speed French TGV trains to the 1964 Helicoid Staircase (part of the MoMa Design Collection). Tallon's LIP designs include the iconic Mach 2000 series.

LIP watches have been around for over 140 years but were unavailable in the United States until now. The company is reintroducing some of their most important models from a modern collection that remains as visionary today as when first unveiled over 35 years ago. Most are faithful recreations while others have been updated with new designer visions.
