A French History

Fred Lip returns to Europe convinced of the future of the electric watch.

The LIP prototype of the world's first electric wristwatch was presented in 1952 at the Paris Academy of Sciences. This innovation represents "a masterpiece of chronometry and quality". The LIP watch equipped with the revolutionary R27 movement will be marketed in 1958. Fred Lip is proud to offer this watch to General de Gaulle and then to General Eisenhower. This GDG model is the result of ten years of research carried out with efficiency and passion to develop the first electric watch that will pave the way for quartz watches.
