LIP Watch - Général De Gaulle. The General de Gaulle watch by LIP, a legend in modern watch design, is so-called because it is an exact replica of the wristwatch worn by French President Charles de Gaulle in the 1950s. That would explain the design's distinct retro feel and its mid-century style "croco" leather strap. Since then the same model was presented to General Eisenhower and worn by Bill Clinton The watch is also important as its chief designer, Fred Lip, who gave his name to the brand was the first watchmaker to use electronic and quartz movements in wristwatches. It's not often that history looks this good. Using a quartz RONDA movement the three hand watch is encased in stainless steel and protected by a mineral glass lens. The strap is made from genuine leather and don't let the vintage feel of this watch fool you into thinking it can't go the distance because it can and will. With a water resistance of up to 5 atm and a two year warranty, this is a watch that will last longer that most president's tenures.
