I may not wear watches, but I’m obsessed with men’s watches. LIP, the French clock and watch company, has made some of my favorites. Don’t know if it’s because of my attraction to big faces, or the fact that the clockwork company takes old, vintage models and remakes them for modern pieces.

LIP has been around since the early 1800’s, with one of their first watches worn by French ruler Napoleon and first electronic watches by President Eisenhower.

To the left: the Big Fridge Watch. Quite fitting.

The Adonis is a reissue, originally designed by Roger Tallon in 1973 for the Mach 2000 series. Aluminum casing, mineral glass, Swiss quartz movement, and grey rubber strap- this is one of my all-time favorites. Also available in black.

Details of the White Mythic are crazy; reminds me of a weight scale. Made as a collaboration between Tallon and French designer Prisca Briquet that took thirty years to develop, it has been updated with a jumping hour display. Tallon responsible for the case and strap design and Briquet added the display in 2006. Features include stainless steel case, mineral glass, and Swiss quartz movement. Niiiiice. ~ C.M.
