This is a great looking NEW OLD STOCK VERY RARE LIP R148 Roger Tallon Designed electronic watch that sets, and runs great. It keeps excellent time. The date function works properly as well and advances each night at midnight.
LIP actually made the world's first electronic watch, being introduced in 1958, and using a tiny diode to reduce sparking of the contacts. The R 184 was the world's first electronic watch with a date function. The case on this watch is very large, going well with today's fashions.
