LeJOUR Le Mans Chrono [cool new liveries]

With its dashing Daytona-like looks, LeJOUR’s racing chronograph family; the Le Mans Chrono has just got itself another set of tasty liveries which have just dropped for the summer. 

These include such cumber cooling combos as a sunray ray green dial with dark green sub-dials IP green bezel or LJ-LM-011 with its granulated grey dial with IP Rose Gold sub-dials and bezel.

Now offered in nine different dial, sub-dial and bezel combos, the Le Mans Chrono from LeJOUR has been realized in a 42mm Stainless Steel case accentuated with a mix of satin brushed finishing with chamfered high-polished edges giving the timepiece a sporty yet premium feel.

Staying true to its vintage roots, the Le Mans Chronograph has been topped with a domed Sapphire crystal. 

Meanwhile the dial below which has been deeply recessed, is offered in two different finishes: sunray or matte with 3 sub-dials finished with snailing (concentric pattern) and a day-date indicator at 3 o’clock.

And for a touch a of versatility, the Le Mans Chronograph comes in two styles of bracelets, four models with 3 link oyster style bracelets and the rest presented on an iconic Jubilee-style bracelet giving a distinctive appeal to each model.

The case-back design has always been an integral feature on the modern day LeJOUR watches; the Le Mans Chronograph is no different; it features a deeply stamped racecar and pit-stop motif. 

And while the watch is inspired by the racetrack, it is still water-resistant to 200m, thanks to a screw-down case-back and crown.

Finally like any racecar wishing to survive the rigors of time such as in the 24Hr Le Mans, the LeJOUR Le Mans Chronograph also has a reliable engine to power it; in this instance, a Swiss made Sellita SW500 Automatic Chronograph movement.

Thoughts? You don’t need to break the bank to get a good looking high-quality Swiss racing chronograph with pedigree – at 1’380USD, these are a steal!
