Quite an interesting timepiece, this LeJour [France] was issued in 1959 to commemorate 50 years of the Ford T Model and it was sold as a novelty watch through car magazines of that time in the USA.
Found new old stock with its original steel milanaise mesh bracelet, it boasts a 40mm case [43mm counting the blue ‘cabochon’ crown] which houses a 17j manual-wind movement [while the movement is unmarked, it looks like an FHF Caliber]. The silver ‘embossed’ dial is stunning. It has been regulated and tested by Localtime. I have made many photos, including some macro shots, just for fun.
As with all the watches I handle in-house here at Localtime, the BIN price includes a 3-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for any questions you might have.
EXTRA! Check out my own Localtime straps: Handmade from premium calf leather to my own specifications in Italy, they come in 5 sizes [lug width/buckle width]: 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18mm & 8 colours: tan, brown, dark brown, black, cinnamon brown, olive green, denim blue and grey blue. I sell these separately in my eBay store under eBay item number 401105271426.Share this watch:
