LIP Watch - Général De Gaulle Automatic. The General de Gaulle Automatic 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 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. Featuring an Automatic movement that removes the need for batteries, this version of the GDG watch by LIP is more sophisticated, and more precise compared with the quartz movement watch. As if to prove the General de Gaulle Automatic watch's inner workings to the owner, you can watch them in action through the transparent back of the stainless steel case. Offering a two year warranty and water resistance up to 3 atm, this Automatic watch by LIP is a watch you'll wear for life.
