LIP Himalaya, gaining world recognition.
At only 23 years old, Emmanuel Lipmann decided to create his own watch making workshop entitled - LIP in the eastern region of France, known as Besançon. From an early age, Emmanuel was known to be a bold and visionary character with an extreme sense of visual aesthetics. This, combined with his working capability, allowed the trade to grow quickly and thus establishing LIP locally.
In 1928, his son Samuel went to American to study and visited watch making workshops throughout his time. Samuel was also greatly inspired by his experiences and thus upon his return decided to join the family business with is father.
Many people within the international watch making industry now consider Samuel's knowledge and contributions to Horlogerie to be pure genius.
Under his management, LIP not only became the first independent watch making manufacture in France but also gained worldwide recognition. It is now said to be that LIP is the true pioneer in French watchmaking history.
The HIMALAYA collection produced by LIP was created in the year of 1954. This unique collection was produced with mountain enthusiasts in mind. As the each individual timepiece is strongly resistant to shock. The collection is also associated with many sporting events and capable to be worn during the most extreme adventures. It should also be noted that HIMALAYA timepieces were once gifted as an award to the winners of “ Tour de France”.
The new version of HIMALAYA inherits the meaning and the features of the collection. It is
simple but classic. The dial with a diameter of 40mm lays perfectly on the gentleman’s wrist.
