Merci Lip!

Have you ever really wanted something, but just figured it would never happen?  I have been chasing Lip not unlike a jilted boyfriend the Sunday after the Junior Prom.  And they make a lot of watches that have caught my eye, but with this one, they have finally shot an arrow into my heart (metaphorically, not literally).

Quartz is many things - it is affordable, it is precise, and it is modern. But when I think about the Lip Churchill, I have to be honest - I feel a bit nostalgic. I feel the need for something a wee bit more tactile and mechanical. And it's as if the Montres Gods of the Mount Olympus that is Besançon heard me and now the Churchill is available with an automatic/self-winding movement!
