Le Jour Depthograf Super Compressor Diver's Model circa 1960s

$2,050.00

(Wire/check payment 3% DISCOUNT at checkout)

Le Jour Depthograf diver’s model circa 1960’s. This is a large and thick super compressor cased diver’s tool watch mesuring 45mm in diameter and 14mm thick. Featuring a black painted bezel with calibrations for depth and screw down case back and dual original crowns, the upper for turning the inner rotating elapsed time bezel, and the lower for setting the time and manual winding. The plastic depth tube is still intact around the acrylic crystal (the deeper you go this tube is meant to fill with water and indicate depth as read against the depth gauge on the bezel.

While the gloss black bezel shows some light scratching and erosion, the dial, hands, and all luminous are in remarkably good condition.. Clearly this watch performed as it was intended to and never leaked!

Featuring a beautiful condition original black dial with red and white printed Arabic numerals and white rectangular minute indexes. With wide matchstick hands with patina’d luminous and red second hand. While the gloss black bezel shows some light scratching and erosion, the dial, hands, and all luminous are in remarkably good condition.. Clearly this watch performed as it was intended to and never leaked.

The dial reads Le Jour, 17 Jewels, Depthograf, Selfwinding, SWISS MADE. Powered by self winding 17 jewel movement (ETA 2472). The back of the case says Stainless Steel Case, 20 ATM, Depthograf.

This model is a first cousin of the Nivada Grenchen Depthomatic. LeJour contracted with Nivada Grenchen to manufacture this watch for them. The depth tube is a patented depth meter using a Bourdon Tube, as used by the Cousteau Diving Team back in the 1960’s when this watch was made.

A very unique and impressive diver’s model. Offered on your choice of leather or sporty style strap. Guaranteed genuine, serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with a 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.
