was one of the most advanced divers of its time, thanks to its Super
Compressor case boasting a 200-meter water resistance.
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 nice condition, and
looks equally on the wrist.
