The MACH 2000 collection
The MACH 2000 range is an atypical and unique collection with a founding principle: ergonomics. The Dark Master LIP chronograph remains one of the most emblematic timepieces in the world of watchmaking design. Designed by Roger TALLON, a pioneer in design, it has been able to free itself from the classic forms of watchmaking to become a true design object. Every detail of the watch has an ergonomic function: ease of use, intuitive time reading. The Dark Master watch, famous thanks to its asymmetrical shape and its three primary colours buttons, has a design that is still unequalled to this day.
This atypical and very contemporary watch is a faithful replica of the original 1975 model. It expresses the principles enunciated by its designer: "to reconsider the small time-keeping machine in a broader way by analysing all its functions". Made in France, it reflects French watchmaking expertise.
A French History
Roger Tallon was one of the designers to accompany the house of Lip in its design adventure, under the direction of Claude Neuschwander. A true design genius and TGV designer, Roger TALLON brought a new look to the watch and designed the emblematic Mach 2000 range in 1974.
