LIP Mach 2000 'Dark Master'. A modern quartz version of the famous Roger Tallon-designed watch from the 70's. Acquired 2009-11-17 from Squiggly.com
This modern version is powered by a Swiss ETA quartz chronograph. It might not have the charm of the old Valjoux 7734 -- but it is a functional improvement. The new version is more accurate and has better timing features.
The original watch was designed in 1973 by French designer Roger Tallon. He also sketched the fast TGV train. The Mach 2000 still looks futurustic, 36 years after its introduction!
