Emmanuel Lipmann of Alsace, France was the son of a watchmaker in 1807. In 1867, Ernst Lipmman, his grandson, set up a factory in Besançon, France. By 1890 the company had grown and was employing 35 people, half of them home-workers. About 1900, Emmanuel’s sons Camile and Ernest took over the running of the company. The sons brought in facilities for producing their own pocket and wrist watch movements. The brand name of Lip was introduced in 1906. About the 1930’s, the company started to concentrate on producing precision watches, some of these were endorsed by the ‘National Observatory’ in Besançon.
In 1936 a Lipmman chronometer set a new record for accuracy.
In 1945 the company was passed to the next generation and was controlled by Fred Lip, grandson of Ernst. Fred was a watchmaker by trade. The company had now grown to about 650 employees and produced about a thousand watches a day.
