Historical Perspectives A Detailed Investigation Into The Mysterious Lip ‘Paul Newman’ Chronograph
I became strongly enamored with this blue Lip chronograph in 2013. I had seen the watch before (being a Frenchman ensures you get exposed to countless Lip and Yema watches), but was a wrist shot published on the Vintage Rolex Forum that made me fall in love. Obsession is the name of the game with vintage watches, so I have been monitoring every single blue Lip offered publicly ever since – and I even bought two examples myself along the way. After observing over 20 examples in addition to my own, I feel fairly confident in saying that of the two mysterious variations of this blue dial Lip chronograph, it’s likely that only one is the real deal.
