Brief History of LeJour Wrustwatches

Le Jour Watches was produced under private label by CUANILLON Cie années 60 BienneHEUER - Années 60 HEUER LEONIDAS SA Bienne. Although Le Jour started trading in 1965, they aren’t a particularly well known brand. They had a number of solid looking chronograph models over the years with good quality Valjoux movements, but seemed to slip into obscurity during the 1980′s.
One of the Le Jour models which you still see from time to time is this PVD coated chronograph which bears more than a striking resemblance to a model by Heuer Pasadena
