SNAZZY~60s LEJOUR "DATE AT 12" PANDA CHRONOGRAPH

Regular price $0.69 Sale

COMING AT YOU IS A PROVOCATIVE 60s LEJOUR PANDA CHRONOGRAPH WITH THE SEXY DATE AT 12 WITH A CERTAIN "JE NAIS SE QUOI"

 

  • CASE: CHUNKY GOLD FILLED CASE IN GOOD CONDITION.   THIS GUY MEASURES A LARGE 37mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING  CROWN BY 46mm LUG TO LUG. THE CASE HAS SOME MINOR WEAR IN THE GOLD AT THE LUG TIPS BUT OVERALL IN WELL PRESERVED SHAPE. SOME WEAR TO THE PUSHERS. I LOVE THE SHIP ON THE CASEBACK. ADDS A SPORTY FLAIR TO THIS OTHERWISE DRESSY PIECE.

 

  • DIAL: CLASSIC PANDA WITH A TWIST. CHECK OUT THAT GORGEOUS SUNBURST CHAMPAGNE DIAL WITH THOSE GROOVY BLACK APPLIED NUMERALS. IT'S ALL ABOUT THAT DATE WINDOW PLACMENT AT 12, THOUGH. FRAMED BY THAT RED SQUARE TIPPED CHRONO SWEEPER, IT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITE WAYS TO DISPLAY THE DATE. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS DIAL HAS A FACTORY IRREGULARITY WHICH ADDS A QUIRKY FLAIR TO THIS VINTAGE. YOU'LL NOTICE THAT THE MINUTE TOTALIZER SUBDIAL IS PRINTED SLIGHTLY LOWER ON THE DIAL THAN THE RUNNING SECONDS. YOU REALLY HAVE TO BE LOOKING FOR IT, AND IT DEFINITELY DOESN'T JUMP OUT AT YOU. LOVE THOSE WHITE SUBDIAL HANDS AND THOSE CLEAN GOLD/BLACK DAGGER HANDS. REALLY A SHARP LOOKING FACE.  

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS SLEEK PANDA IS POWERED BY A SWISS VALJOUX 7734 WITH THE MOVEMENT ROTATED 180 DEGREES  TO ALLOW THE DATE PLACEMENT AT 12.  MOVEMENT IS SIGNED JP PINGOIN WHICH WAS ONE OF THE MAIN MOVEMENT PRODUCERS FOR LEJOUR BACK IN THE 60s. ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT WATCH HAS BEEN BEHAVING AMAZINGLY FOR WEEKS OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION.

 

  • THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHRONOGRAPHS OF THE 60s. I JUST LOVE THE SPICY ATTITUDE OF THAT DATE AT 12 FRAMED BY THE CHRONO SWEEP HAND. MOUNTED ON A HANDMADE B&S STRAP, THIS IS A SHARP LOOKING CHRONO WITH SOME NICE WRIST-PRESENCE.
