Vintage LIP Watches

Vintage LIP Watches

From Watchismo comes this collection of antique and vintage Lip watches ranging from the turn of the century (1900-1976) through the Space-age. “From classic gunmetal pocket watches to the ultra-modern wristwatches by the designer series of the seventies. Rarities in mint condition to models in new-old-stock models that have never been worn since they were introduced decades ago”. This might be one of the finest vintage collections we’ve ever seen and considering some of the pieces were locked up without ever being worn, you should check the wristcandy and maybe get one around yours if your wallet allows.
