Strap: 19mm brown suede side-stitch strap with polished stainless steel tang buckle

Movement: Felsa cal. 4007N self-winding automatic movement (17 jewels) with date display at 3 o'clock; 18,000 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Stunning original "tropical" brown dial with creamy Tritium patina; original Tritium handset with matching yellow patina; date display at 3 o'clock; original rotating bezel displays elapsed time (i.e. during dives); original domed acrylic crystal with internal date magnifier; rare LeJour diver model with oversized 38mm stainless steel straight-lug case

Condition: Very nice original condition overall with honest wear consistent with age and use; oversized 38mm solid stainless steel case remains thick and sharp with some toolmarks on the screw-down caseback; very attractive original matte black dial has aged to a beautiful tropical brown hue with creamy patina to the Tritium luminous elements; original Tritium handset with matching yellow patina; original rotating diver bezel exhibits some very light fading and minor wear

Other: This rare 1960s LeJour dive watch checks a lot of boxes - Just take a look at the gorgeous tropical brown dial with large creamy Tritium hour markers. It's crazy to think that this dial was born matte black and has aged so uniquely over the past 50+ years... We recommend pairing this watch with a camel coat or green military jacket, but it wears just as well with a t-shirt and jeans or a swimming suit by the pool. Pro tip: Get it out in the sun where the dial really comes to life! Where else can you get a vintage 38mm diver with straight lugs, a tropical dial, and a killer bezel for under a grand?
