EU seller for EU sale !!!
I am selling an old watch of the Italian brand Laurens, founded in 1952 by Tullio Bolletta:
Model identical to Lip Stop called "Parking" or "Parkmeter" produced at the same time.
The 60-minute disk at 12:00, which resets via the push button, allowed a mark on the parking time that remained before having to return parts in the parking meter.
The name "minStop" was used by several brands of the time, such as Buren or Vulcain, often with a case that was specific to each brand:
However, it is the only model I found with a blue dial, most of them having gray alu, like all Lip, even occasionally black.
Like the others, it is equipped with the Durowe 471-4 movement:CHARACTERISTICS :
