LIP Montres France has now introduced the highly successful Mythic line with a fully mechanical automatic "Automythic". Designed by the original designer, Prisca Briquet, the Auto-Mythic now features an self-winding movement by Miyota and you can see the mechanics and rotor through the sapphire crystal caseback.

The latest interpretation with new display and massively integrated steel bracelet. From a collaboration separated by four decades with the 1970's case & bracelet design by Roger Tallon, the jump hour display of Prince Francois de Baschmakoff blended together into an entirely new concept by designer Prisca Briquet for the innovative French brand LIP.WHEN THE 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 wristwatch collections that would set LIP apart from its competition. Not only did they succeed, their signature watches became cult favorites and revolutionized the watch company.
Fast-forward three decades. Under the watchful eye of Lip's new design director Prisca Briquet, these 1970s groundbreaking vintage pieces (including those in Tallon's Mach 2000 series and Revival Seventies collection) are now being reissued, along with several other classic styles that have received updates.
A culmination of over 40 years of design expertise and the perfect blend of past and present, Montres LIP are ahead of their time, both then and now.
