LIP was a retailer in Paris, and also a manufacturer in Besançon.

Turned down?

Didn't LIP turn down the Nageur de Combat guys (Maloubier) when they were searching for a useful french tool, and refused to make a diver for them?

Yes. Right.

A wonderful watch.

Every time I see any of your vintage FF's I am thinking that the "modern" FF's ,including the recently released 42 mm versions, do not share too many design elements in common. If it were not for the brand or the name I would probably not relate the Vinta... 

I saw the Act 3 a few weeks ago and it is a superb watch.

Hélas,the price of this gold-bronze version was equally "superb". But in steel it could be the one for me.

A guess

I somehow anticipate that an expansion of "Tech" to a "FF Tech line" would make sense, be it with 47mm or 45mm case and rubber straps similar to Act II. A long stretch from the fantastic originals in many ways, but very close in terms of the original conc... 

Would fit

Yeah, that and/or a revision of the present to bring it to the series would make a lot of sense, would belong there. The way I picture it, an expansion of the Tech to a series with a common design language ++ will open up some space for more luxury to 501... 

As long as...

As long as you don't sell mine 😉 Fully empathise with your sentiment, somehow doubt it would happen beyond a limited run though.
