LeJour Yachtingraf ref. 93012 Regatta Chronograph

SOLD

Brand: LeJour

Model: Yachtingraf ref. 93012 Yachting Regatta Chronograph; Made in France circa late 1960s

Case: Solid stainless steel case with screw-down back is approximately 38mm excluding the original crown and pushers; inner caseback is properly signed by Continental Time Co. with correct 93012 reference number

Strap: Vintage 19mm Tropic-style rubber diver strap (black) with tang buckle; this model came on this same style strap as depicted in original Yachtingraf advertisements

Movement: Valjoux cal. 7730 manual-winding chronograph movement (17 jewels); bridge is properly signed by Continental Time Co.

Features: Super cool blue and red yachting regatta countdown register designed and patented specifically for regatta racing; original rotating countdown bezel

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with honest wear and light signs of use; crisp stainless steel case appears to be unpolished with great lugs and original "fat-font" bezel insert; original dial with vibrant colors; original handset with luminous material matching the dial; minute hand is missing some of its luminous material

Other: We strongly believe that the Yachtingraf is one of the coolest watches that money can buy, especially at this price point. Simply put, it's hard to beat this dial when the sun is out. And the straight-lug case wears so well on the wrist just like an early Speedmaster! If you already collect these or are trying to track one down, you'll quickly learn that they're extremely difficult to find in nice original condition. Examples branded by LeJour for the U.S. market are also considerably more rare than Yema. This particular example may have never been opened before now. The back was on extremely tight and when opened, revealed a Valjoux 7730 movement that looked completely untouched with every screw head and movement plate in perfect original condition. This is exactly how we like to find our watches!
