For a subtle accessory that makes a bold statement, Watchismo recently made a rare private collection of vintage LIP watches available after remaining in storage for several decades. The collection includes rare editions such as the original Mach 2000 chronographs from Roger Tallon and Prince Francois de Baschmakoff's Jumping Hour Watch, standing the test of time and making the collection historically beautiful. Now your wrist can have something in common with everyone from Napoleon Bonaparte to French army officers, who have worn with the 150-year-old brand's high-quality, Swiss movement watches.
