This French brand had its heyday in the 1950s and 1960s with a variety of mechanical watches (diving, chronographs, etc.) and the slogan, "Kiplé, la montre qui plaît"!
As the watch dates from the 50s it has a few signs of ageing, for example, the champagne patina on the dial, the back side of the 2 bottom lugs, one very light chip on the gold-plated case (at 1 o'clock). It was cleaned in February, is in perfect working order and has been fitted with a new leather strap.
