Less Watch, More Quality!

Introduced in 1935, Lip T18 was small, technologically advanced and reliable enough to earn a reputation of the French watch industry flagship. In 1948, Winston Churchill received a T18 as a token of respect and gratitude from the Government of France.
Manufactured at Lip factory in Besançon, this watch had many faces (and cases) during its near-30 years' lifespan. But one feature remained unchanged: if it is not rectangular, it is not a T18.
