    Trivia question of the month:
    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?

    The Lip Nautic Ski was the world first Electronic divers watch and was made around 1967, so this watch must date from the same period. The top crown rotates the internal bezel.

    The watch dates from 1967, it was made by Lip and rebranded as a Stowa Seatime.

    WR was 200 meters and the case width excluding crowns is 36mm, but it wears much larger.

    The case was made by EPSA. "EPSA" stands for E. Piquerez SA, a Swiss company specialized in the manufacture of diving watch cases. In the 60's they had 3 types of cases called the "Compressor", "Compressor 2" and "Super-Compressor".

    EPSA sold their cases to the most prestigious brands and manufactures as Enicar, IWC, Bulova, Hamilton, Omega Longines, Lip, Universal, Tissot, Eterna, Jaeger Le Coultre, Zenith, Zodiac and many others.

    How does the Company decide which old Stowa watches to revive? It seems to me that there are a lot of watches with Stowa name that would be a run away success today if they could be introduced . . .

    I'd be very surprised if Stowa fans find the above watch mediocre...

    A reintroduction of the Electric may be stupendous . . . (although I dont know what the movement is, size, etc).

    It sure looks very handsome!

    I would love a 42-44mm version with a saphire crystal.
