A stunning condition 1960s LIP "Brevet Blancpain" reference 233453 with a superb glossy deep black dial with excellent silver applied indexes and original radium and matching sword hands. Beginning in 1960, LIP began to produce their own diving watches in limited quantities. This is one such watch. These rare LIP-produced diving watches shared the same characteristics of those early Blancpain divers: a patented bakelite bezel with a newly created locking system, and a two-piece caseback with Blancpain’s patented “O-ring” system for sealing the back as tight as possible to accommodate the higher pressures in deeper dives. This is why, while a LIP-produced watch, the dial is signed “brevets Blancpain”. Brevets is french for “invention” or “patent”. The watch is in excellent good conditionshowing light signs of age and or scratches and an unpolished case. All watches are checked by our watchmaker and guaranteed 3 months, 1 year if serviced.
