    Help identifying this movement

    I got this lovely midcentury Le Jour chronograph back from the watchmaker recently. Wears nicely and the patina is pleasing to the eye. Anyone know what kind of movement this is? Any help is appreciated! I’ve supplied some photos below. Also, anyone have a sense of when this was made exactly? Thanks much to the community!
