    Lejour watch does it have any ties to Heuer

    I have seen other watches like this that people have said was tied to heuer. I don't think so but wanted to here from this forum so I can know for sure. It says monnin on inside of case. Does not say Heuer anywhere on inside. Any input would be thank you

    Heuer did make some chronographs for other companies (e.g. Zodiac, Tradition, LeJour), and these are often called "poor man's Heuers", but I'm not sure this particular watch is one of them. However, it is certainly similar to a Heuer, and uses a case made by Monnin, which was also used by Heuer. Honestly, it wouldn't matter very much either way.

    By the way, I think that if you are going to ask people to spend their time and energy to answer your questions, the least you can do is to post in-focus photos.

    I am new to this whole online forum thing. I am an old man so learning as I go. Can you at least give older folks some slack!

    See! If you try a little harder you can do it, old man.

    Next we will work on rotating the photos.

    If I remember correctly, Le Jour was the brand name used by Yema for marketing their chronos and divers in USA.

    Regards.

    Correct. These are basically Yema watches, nothing else. No link between Yema and Heuer except that the Yema chronos were/are regarded by some as an affordable alternative to the Tag Heuers after they went ballistic price-wise alongside the Rolex Daytona.

    There is a rather tenuous link between Sicura and Heuer, but that's another story.
