Launched in 1967, the Nautic-Ski was a carefully planned release for Lip's 100th anniversary. It was technically advanced, as it relied on the electronic caliber R184. In addition, its Super Compressor case offered an inner rotating bezel to securely time any dive. The "Ski" part of its name reflected the popularity of this sport, just one year before the Winter Olympic Games at Grenoble (and the famous ski ads made by the French designer Roger Excoffon). Initially sold for 375 Francs at its launch, the Nautic-Ski quickly became a best-seller for the French manufacturer Lip. This example is in great condition, and looks equally great on the wrist.
The watch uses a electronic caliber R184 movement, it is in full working order and keeping accurate time with a brand new premium battery installed. The watch is keeping accurate time and the date window and subdial is also working perfectly.
