Features: Stunning original glossy black dial with fantastic yellow patina to the luminous elements (Tritium) and outer tachymetre scale (white) designed for use in racing applications; 12-hour chronograph recording capability with red 5-minute yachting regatta countdown register; original handset includes desirable red "lollipop" chronograph sweeping-seconds hand; original rotating bezel displays elapsed time (i.e. during dives) and can track a second time zone; large solid stainless steel "straight-lug" case with domed acrylic crystal

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; solid stainless steel case is thick and sharp and appears to be unpolished; crisp caseback is defined and clearly legible; original bezel insert retains its luminous triangle at 12 o'clock and exhibits minor wear throughout; very attractive glossy black dial with gorgeous yellow patina to the luminous elements (Tritium); original Tritium hands with matching yellow patina; domed acrylic crystal exhibits a few minor superficial scratches

Other: There is something special about a glossy black dial with crisp printing and creamy patina - It looks absolutely incredible on the wrist in just about any lighting condition and wears like a straight-lug Omega Speedmaster! This all-purpose wrist chronograph from LeJour is one of our favorites and has a lot going for it. From its large stainless steel case with rotating bezel to the cool handset with red "lollipop" sweep, it's a versatile tool watch designed for land, sea, and air.
