The LIP Mach 2000 watches that Roger Tallon designed for the French watch company debuted in 1973; it was an instant hit and became one of the company's most popular timepieces ever. This watch features the futuristic, forward-thinking watch look of Lip in a perfect way and is anything but a boring vintage watch. In fact, it looks as if it could have been designed just yesterday. And that's exactly what Tallon (the creative director behind the high-speed French TGV trains) intended for the watch when he was one of the first designers working especially for a watch company. It is a highly fashionable watch with an unique and famous design – the perfect high quality watch for fashion enthusiasts.
The LIP Mach 2000 Lady’s Watch is in very good condition. The wristwatch is equipped with a Ronda quartz movement and is fully functioning (no guarantee on timekeeping accuracy). The black dial with white and yellow line indices, as well as the black leather wristband show the LIP logo.
Roger Tallon (1929 – 2011)
The French product designer Roger Tallon studied engineering from 1944 to 1950. He then worked at Jacques Viénot and Jean Parthenay’s studio, which he later took over. 1957 Tallon taught at the arts and crafts school in Paris. The product designer created hundreds of objects, among others for Peugeot, Kodak, Air France, General Motors and SNCF. His designs for the watchmaker LIP are classics today.
The French watchmaker LIP was founded 1867 by Emmanuel Lipmann (1844-1913). After his death, the company continued successfully and experimented with several techniques and materials. Soon, LIP achieved a yearly production of up to 500.000 watches, including the LIP Electronic with the movement R.27. In 1974, Claude Neuschwader took over LIP’s management and worked with various designers, among others with Roger Tallon, Marc Held and Jean Dinh Van. Since 1975 the Mach 2000 watches became avant-garde style icons.
