Vintage 1960s Lip Chrono-Stop Parking Meter Wrist Watch Very Rare made in West Germany
Vintage Lip watches are rare to begin with; but this window style chrono-stop, specifically made for recording the time spent away from the parking meter is quite rare. The watch keeps regular time including a central sweep seconds hand while the window style min. recording chrono continuously runs. When you press the pusher, the parking meter timer resets to zero and continues to record minutes. The watch has very little wear on its original unaltered surfaces. In fact, I would call it new old stock if it wasn't for the fact that the watch still has its original strap which is in fair condition. This was has been serviced and is keeping and recording time very well. This watch is made of full stainless steel and is a manual wind 17 jewel movement with shock protection. The only flaw I can see on the watch is a scratch on the original crystal at 6 o'clock; otherwise, this is probably the best example I've ever seen; although I cannot really find them anymore. Get it while you can. These are super rare, especially in this color combo with a silver dial and blue recording window.
