LeJour Yachtingraf ref. 9312 Regatta Chronograph


***As featured on HODINKEE's Bring A Loupe***

Brand: LeJour

Model: Yachtingraf ref. 9312 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 9312 reference number

Strap: Vintage 19mm genuine Swiss Tropic strap (black) with correct original steel tang buckle; this model came on this 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 light signs of use; crisp stainless steel case with great lugs and original "fat-font" bezel insert; original dial with vibrant colors; original handset with all luminous material in tact and matching the dial

Other: We strongly believe that the Yachtingraf is one of the coolest watches that money can buy, especially at this price point. This superb example comes straight out of our founder's personal collection just in time for some good weather. 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.
