1940s Military Tank French Watch by Lip

This vintage military French watch tells the story of a different time. The rectangular tank-style watch case comes in beautiful silver tones, and we have paired it with a new, black leather strap to match its design. 

If you look closely at the design of the dial, you will notice that the watch comes with a tiny sub-dial, which shows how seconds pass. The hands of the watch present a lovely shade of dark blue, being easily noticeable against the white dial. 

Over the years, this LIP watch model has acquired a unique patina, which speaks of the many adventures the watch must have been through until today. 
If you're looking for a durable vintage watch, which is probably older than you, you will surely be impressed by this high-quality French watch that still keeps time so accurately after all of these years.

Shortly about the LIP watch brand

In 1807, the Jewish community of Besançon offered a mechanical pocket watch to Napoleon. Sixty years later, Emmanuel Lipman and his sons founded a clockwork workshop under the name of Comptoir Lipmann. Jean-Claude Sensemat then bought the brand in 1990, and relaunched the production with modern marketing methods. The sales increased to a million watches a year. The LIP reissued Charles de Gaulle's watch, which Jean-Claude Sensemat offered to U.S. President Bill Clinton.

 

About mechanical watches

mechanical watch is a watch that uses a clockwork mechanism to measure the passage of time, as opposed to quartz watches which function electronically, with the help of a small battery.

A mechanical watch is driven by a mainspring which must be hand-wound periodically. Its force is transmitted through a series of gears to power balance, a weighted wheel that oscillates back and forth at a constant rate. A device called an escapement releases the watch's wheels to move forward a small amount with each swing of the balance wheel, moving the watch's hands forward at a constant rate.
