History :
The watch called "Himalaya" is a key model of yesterday's and today's LIP collection. Produced from 1954 till 1973, many models wearing this name were launched on the market. This watch was peculiar to many competing in sports challenges at this time, in particular those of the climbers explorers such as Maurice Herzog.
 
A Himalaya watch was moreover offered at that time to the best sportsman of the day during the Tour de France and the model's promotion was based on its big reliability and its staunch robustness.
