Le Jour chronographs are nicknamed “the poor man’s Heuer”. This is because Le Jour Chronographs were manufactured by Heuer under a private-label arrangement from the 1960s until the early 1980s. Le Jour’s chronographs were powered by Valjoux movements. This specific watch has as Valjoux 7733 movement, which was introduced in 1968 and was in production until the late 70s.
