Look at this vintage 1970’s LE Jour chronograph ca. 1980 , with black, PVD steel case, 40mm diameter, screw back, mineral crystal Internal, tachymeter bezel, black dial with luminous indexes, day and date at 3 o’clock, 30 minute register at 12 o’clock, 12 hours register at 6 o’clock. The Swiss, self winding movement, cal. Valjoux 7750 is of very fine quality-keeping excellent and accurate time, with all functions operating flawlessly after a very recent full cleaning. My guess is that the rotor was changed at one time with a correct 7750 replacement. The original black PVD bracelet is full length, and with the naked eye, looks pristine. The case is also without any detracting wear at all. In real life, this watch looks fabulous and without any detracting case wear-much better than my pictures. The crystal has a scratch that is not detracting and barely noticeable. This watch was purchased from the original owner and was stored for over 25 years in a drawer. The inner, outer box includes the original tissue paper, warranty card, bracelet instructions, day/date setting instructions, foil tags and full colour manual. This is complete and fine as you will ever find! Heuer manufactured Le Jour chronographs under a private-label arrangement in 1980. This Le Jour is the exact same watch as the Reference 750.501 HEUER (Pasadena), except that the Le jour sold for for $295, whilst the Heuer was $354 when brand new in 1980.
