French "Lip" electronic Super Compressor 200m dive watch, 1960s
This is a very neat and unusual late 1960s diver, the Lip Nautic-ski. It is a super compressor design, with double crowns. One is the standard crown for time-setting, the upper one is for rotating the internal indicator ring.
The watch uses an electronic movement, the in-house R184. it is a thirteen-jewel movement.
Jacques Cousteau wore one of these in his undersea adventures.
