HISTORY & NOTES
During the 1960s there was considerable cooperation between French and East German watch companies with regard to the production of Divers' watches in the GDR. This is one such example between Cupillard and VEB, resulting in the KIPLE. This is a rare watch indeed!
Examine the photos carefully; they form the majority of this vintage GDR watch's description.
Your Kiple will be carefully wrapped (see my Feedback and bid with confidence!) and shipped via Colissimo Insured & Signed For.
NB: I never guarantee watches are waterproof!
