I have tried 4 "professionals", including a jeweller, and they have all failed to find a way into the watch. Surely there is a way??!! (All I can think is that the glass must unscrew e.g. with a suc
I saw some photos recently of a LeClip lapel watch and there appears to be a separation where the round portion holding the movement sits against the clip construction... that is where I would try and pry it apart. Here's some info on leClip FYI...
The brand of these watches is "Le Clip" and they are not Swatch nor are they by the Swatch Group. They should not be mistaken for the Swatch Clip watches or the Clip prototype. The watches made by Le Clip were also from the eighties and that shows. They were very trendy in those days and a worldwide success. There were a big range of different ones and there even exist Maxi's, just like Swatch! Today they are very hard to find. The biggest problem wit Le Clip watches is that they were not designed to get a new battery! I do not know how to open it, I have one here but I do not see how to do it.
Biederman & Company has become the United States ad agency for Le Clip, a Swiss-made watch that may be clipped to a place of your choice. According to Barry Biederman, the watch has already caught on in Switzerland, Britain, France and Spain, where 500,000 of them are expected to be sold this year.
With the United States added, the sales goal for 1987 is two million.
The watch is being made by Le Clip S. A. of Geneva, and it has set up an American marketing arm called Le Clip U. S. with Steve Bochner, formerly a regional sales manager of Swatch Watch U.S.A., as managing director. Le Clip will have a suggested sales price of $35.
The budget for the October-through-December introduction in New York will be about $500,000, and national spending next year should be $2 million to $3 million. All in good time.
