Originally a producer of watches and pocket watches, Lip has also manufactured aviation timepieces (see Type 44 and Type 18). The renowned quality of Lip movements also allowed the Manufacture to supply other luxury brands such as Boucheron. With its good reputation and the conquering spirit of Fred Lip, the company has also approved partnerships with prestigious brands. We can thus think of Blancpain, with which were produced, at the end of the 1950s, diving watches which are today very much sought after., but also to Breitling, a long-standing specialist in high-end chronographs and closely associated with the aerospace world.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
