NOS New Old Stock - Never worn!
Ultra-rare prototype (never went into production) of a Mach 2000 designed by Roger Tallon.
Moonphase movement activated by center crown (not chronograph, top & bottom pushers are design only)
iconic LIP Chronograph was originally designed by Roger Tallon in
1973, as part of his Mach 2000 series.
The Mach 2000 series are unmistakable
with their protruding balls for stopwatch pushers & crowns set into the asymmetric solid stainless steel watch case.WHEN
INFAMOUS limited-edition Lip Mach 2000 Chronographs that
Roger Tallon designed for the French company Lip debuted in 1973, it
was an instant hit and became one of the company's most popular
timepieces ever. So it's entirely fitting that this year, as Lip
launches in the United States for the first time in the brand's 142 year
history, the iconic Mach 2000 is returning to the lineup -- and
the master isn't missing a tick. Thirty-five years after the Lip
DarkMaster watch was first introduced, the futuristic, forward-thinking
watch looks anything but vintage. In fact, it looks as if it could have
been designed just yesterday. And that's exactly what Tallon (the
creative mastermind behind the high-speed French TGV trains) intended
for it when back in the 1970s, they enlisted him as well as various
other prominent designers, architects, and interior decorators to work
for them. Their job? To collaborate on several cutting-edge,
distinctive Lip Watch collections that would set Lip Watches apart from
its competition. Not only did they succeed, their signature watches
became cult favorites and revolutionized the watch company.
