One of the vintage dive watches that have caught my eye are the Lip Nautic-Ski dive watches. Lip is a French clock and watch company that was established in the 1860's. The company produced several types of watches, including one of my favorite vintage dive watches, the "Nautic-Ski", in 1967. The Nautic-Ski was the company's first attempt to make a real divers watch.

I have included a couple photos of examples of Nautic-Ski's and have included a link below to an article written by Nick Downes on the history of the Lip Clock and Watch Company.

The Nautic-Ski came in several different versions, with water resistence of 200m, an R184 electro-mechanical movement with date and internal bezels.

This company has made some amazing looking watches for many years
now it seems. They kind of look old and new at the same time. Lip Nautic-Ski Dive Watches Icon_smile One
time you can look at them and see vintage. Then another time it's like
sci-fi or something !
