General de Gaulle
Every year French brand, Lip, reissues an old classic from their back catalog. This year, they have launched two remakes – Lip De Gaulle and Himalaya. The original General de Gaulle 1952 watch featured an electronic movement and was not only worn by France’s President de Gaulle, but by Dwight Einsenhower and Bill Clinton. Both of whom are American Presidents. The General de Gaulle re-issue comes with an automatic movement.
The Himalaya is a homage to the original namesake created in 1954. The original Himalaya was popular with the sports playing crowd back in the day due to its shock resistance, though i don’t know if the re-issue is similar in nature.
