On sale today is a rather rare, quirky branded LIP NOS diver watch from the 1960s with a working mechanical thermometer!
Watch measures 36mm, rather cool with a thermometer that doesn't use anything but a tiny spiral spring to calculate the estimated temperature. It works very well, and I even tested it in the freezer, below -10 degrees Celsius, under above 32 degrees celsius under the hot Singapore sun! Interesting to note that watch does not freeze below 0 in the freezer and works very well without stopping. No condensation formed under the crystal which is a good sign that watch is pretty waterproof. Diver watch measures 60 ATM but I think its better to get a pressure check before diving (C'mon use a Casio).
I did not open the watch as this is NOS and I do not want any marks on it. But manual wind watch works great and keeps time well.
I am asking for USD 1,400, that comes with the original strap, and double box.
Prefers bank wire but will take paypal IF you pay the fees and in SGD only (FX is a killer for me for paypal)
Will ship worldwide and fedex included (3 days shipping) anywhere.
